About me

Taking the first step to seeing a counsellor may seem rather daunting. The thought of opening up about your innermost feelings and fears can seem challenging or even frightening.

But it can also be the first step to helping you overcome your anxieties, fears or phobias and can start you off on a journey that can change your life.

Finding the right therapist to help you on this journey is crucial. It’s important that you find a counsellor that you trust and feel comfortable with.

I offer a  caring, supportive and confidential space where you can safely explore your feelings, thoughts, fears and actions at your own pace and without fear of judgement.

Why Counselling?

The reason you decide to have counselling is personal to you.  You may have experienced a trauma, either recently or in the past; you may have a dilemma or challenge which you need to explore or you may be facing a change in your life which feels frightening for you.

The reasons are many and there is no wrong reason for deciding to look for support.  If you feel it's important, then it is.

The Next Step...

Just as deciding to have counselling is a personal decision, so is choosing a counsellor.

If you feel that counselling may be of help to you, it's useful to find out enough information to enable you to make an informed choice. I aim to provide clear, helpful information so that you can decide on the best way forward for you.

If you would like to speak to me in connection with counselling, would like to find out if I am able to help you or would like to make an appointment, do please contact me.

Please note, I aim to reply to any enquiries within 48 hours, often sooner.  If you have requested a response by email, do check your spam box if you haven't heard from me.
