About me

Our thoughts, feelings and experiences can become overwhelming at times. I am able to offer you the opportunity to feel heard and understood. This will enable you to explore and manage your emotions, allowing you to work towards resolving issues and beneficial change.

YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

Your initial appointment will be free of charge with no obligation, as I believe it is important to trust and feel comfortable with your counsellor and have confidence that working together may be therapeutic for you. This assessment allows us to meet and discuss what it is you would like and need from counselling.

HOW COUNSELLING MAY HELP YOU

Perhaps you are suffering from anxiety or depression, grieving after a bereavement or have suffered a different kind of loss. Maybe work place stress is having a detrimental effect on your well-being or you are having relationship problems? You may be experiencing health issues, chronic pain or have unresolved issues that you would like to explore? Sometimes we just cannot identify the reasons that are making us feel this way, exploring the past and present may bring awareness and understanding.

Counselling is a safe, confidential place to offload, express and process your feelings in a way that may not be available to you at the moment, this may allow you to feel less alone or isolated. My belief that emotional discord can affect our physical health allows me to look at the whole picture and perhaps suggest coping strategies. This is supported by research and may affect a range of issues including anxiety, panic attacks and even pain.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work with adults as a Person Centred Counsellor in Northamptonshire and have a special interest in anxiety, stress and trauma. I treat all of my clients with empathy, respect and without judgement offering the best possible support at all times. My counselling room is very comfortable, welcoming and situated on the ground floor in a quiet and peaceful location with plenty of free parking.

I offer short and long term private counselling - face to face.
