About me

Life is full of transitions and unexpected situations – relationship break-ups, career changes, changing school/university, personal losses or moving home/country – that may challenge who you are, how you feel and your purpose in life.

If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, overwhelming or difficult emotions,  negative thoughts, or unwanted behaviour; counselling in a supportive, non-judgemental, and safe space, can help you look at past and present events, set up goals, manage issues.

When you are going through a difficult transition in life, there is no shame in asking for help. As a qualified Person-Centred counsellor, I will work with you to explore what is troubling you, how to develop resilience and what is the best way forward.

I offer a free 20-minute initial phone call or Zoom consultation to all new clients to give us both the chance to see if we can work together.
