About me

Coming to counselling can be the first step towards change and growth. It can also feel risky and provoke anxiety. I hope to reassure you, whether exploring this for the first time, or whether you have seen a therapist in the past, that it can be a supportive and nourishing experience. It can help us to get to know ourselves better, what our needs are and how we can have our own and others’ met with more clarity and compassion.

I work relationally, and offer a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space to explore difficult feelings and understand underlying patterns in relationships. I have a flexible approach, tailoring our work to your needs. We focus on the here and now (what’s happening from moment to moment), working in collaboration, at your pace, and where your interest lies. This can help you to see more clearly what your situation is, how you are a part of it, and find new ways to face the difficulty.
