About me

- Your first step is the bravest -

Hello. I work one to one with feeling sad, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and challenges of daily living. Our time together is in the comfortable and confidential 'pod' in Yaxley, in Peterborough, or using video software such as Zoom. Alternatively I use outdoor spaces in and around Peterborough for nature based counselling.

There are many reasons why you may want to come to counselling, for release and to feel better with shorter term work, others want a longer-term deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. Whatever it is you are looking for, I can assure you of a non-judgmental and nurturing space to talk and be heard.

If you are coming to terms with a loss, feeling sad or times of overwhelm where you simply feel unsure of what is going on for you please call or message me.
