About me

Perhaps you are looking for a counsellor because you are troubled about something. Maybe you are feeling anxious or depressed. Or, perhaps, you are interested in your personal development.

I work as a counsellor and psychotherapist with young people, adults, older adults and couples. Those I work with sometimes have difficulty with personal relationships, in their work, or in social situations. Often, they have experienced something recently, or in the past, which is causing distress and has an impact on their life now.  

Counselling is an opportunity to explore what is going on for you and to discover opportunities to make changes to make your life better. It is supportive and non-judgemental.

Each session takes place in a quiet and confidential setting and lasts for 50 minutes. In our first session we explore what your hopes are for our work together and decide on practical issues like time and frequency of sessions.

I am experienced in working with an extensive range of issues including, among others,

Caring for children or adults who are mentally or physically disabled
Lack of motivation
Low mood
Low self worth
Psychological trauma
Self harm
Sexual abuse  

My fees reflect my level of qualification and experience. Concessions/reduced rates are available.

There is an option of evening, weekend and daytime appointments. Appointments can be made via email, text, or phone.
