About me


We live in a world full of challenges and expectations and like many people at some stage in their lives, you may be overwhelmed or unable to move forward. As a result, you may feel anxious, depressed, lonely, angry, confused, stressed out or generally unable to cope. You may have suffered the loss of a loved one or you may be struggling with low self-esteem or relationship problems.

Would you like a safe place to talk through and make sense of these feelings, worries and problems? Would you like help finding coping strategies and feel more confident, more in control? In that case, you may benefit from counselling.

Depression is a medical illness and not your fault.

"Fay helped me confront issues and feelings that I had been too scared to confront on my own"

"Fay has been a fantastic support to me"

I am here to help by providing a confidential space to explore your issues. I am not here to judge you but to listen to you and to understand what is going on for you. I am here to support you when looking back at relationships or problems in your past and seeing how they may affect your present life. I am here to offer you a different environment and a different perspective to work through your problems. I am also here to help you gain a greater self- understanding and new ways to move forward.

"What I found most helpful was being able to talk openly in confidence and not being judged"

"Fay helped me get back to my former self"
