About me

Asking for help can be the hardest decision to make, but in exploring counselling as an option, you’ve taken the first step in the process to real change and taking control of your life again. Sometimes an issue in your life can feel so overbearing that you don’t know where to begin. In providing you with my support, dedication and commitment, my aim is to help you to be able to work through solutions and have a greater understanding of what you are experiencing, enabling you to take control and becoming empowered to reach your goals, make lasting changes and move forward positively in order to lead a more fulfilled quality of life.

I offer face to face, individual counselling and provide you with a warm, safe, relaxed and therapeutic space where you can give yourself the opportunity to take time out, talk openly and explore your feelings, thoughts, emotions and concerns which are important to you, in depth, in a private and safe place.
I treats people with warmth, understanding and respect. I believe in people and enjoy empowering them to make the best decisions for themselves and get great pleasure in watching people grow and develop as individuals. I hope that my natural warm persona and training in person centred counselling would enable you to begin the process.


The first step is to phone me to make an appointment for a consultation session.
This gives us the opportunity to learn more about each other, gives you the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss any issues you feel are important to you in more detail. I will explain how I work so you can decide whether you would like us to enter into a counselling relationship together. If you decide that therapy with me isn’t for you there is no obligation to continue. If we do agree to work together, we can arrange our next session and establish a suitable framework for sessions ahead.
