About me

Are you struggling to be happy, dealing with feelings such as sadness, anxiety or low self-esteem? Sometimes life gets on top of us and we can't work out how to move forward. Perhaps there are issues from your past that won't go away, which are interfering with your present life. You might feel stuck, stressed, depressed and not sure where to turn. We all go through difficult times, and it can sometimes be hard to make the first step to seek help. Well, now might be the right time to take the first step and get in touch.

I offer a safe space to talk about things in more depth and help you understand them better. I will listen without judging and help you resolve your difficulties in ways that work for you. I will encourage you and help you explore ways forward at your pace, so you can start to feel happier and stronger.

It’s important that you find the right counsellor for you. To help you find out if you'd like to work with me, I can offer an initial 30-minute online or phone session for free. Contact me by email to meet up without obligation.
