About me

I am an experienced and fully-qualified counsellor with a private practice located in Sutton Harbour. I can offer you a confidential, sincere and non-judgemental relationship, exploring issues and presenting problems that have brought you here. I work with a wide range of issues such as stress, grief, depression, anxiety and loss of meaning or purpose.

Seeking therapy for the first time may seem daunting, but I have a warm and approachable manner and can help you feel at ease. It is paramount that you feel safe to talk about the challenges you are facing in your life. I am here for you. Whatever is challenging you right now, talking to a caring professional can be transformational.

We will walk together and discover the root of your issue and help to create a better understanding of it. This will provide you with the opportunity to make positive changes in your life and help you to feel and become fulfilled.

I am a registered member with the BACP and as such, work within the ethical framework.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss whether counselling is right for you, finding the right counsellor is vital to the success of your therapeutic journey.

I offer sessions face to face in my therapy room on Sutton Harbour (free parking available), I also offer counselling in your home or online counselling through Zoom.
