About me


You are taking a brave step when you make the decision to come for counselling and decide to do something proactive towards changing aspects of your life which you feel you can no longer deal with alone.

I recognise the need to be able to build up a trusting relationship with you and I believe I have the personal qualities required to allow this to take place. I possess a natural warmth and acceptance towards each person I meet, which will allow you to feel safe and ensure you feel as comfortable and safe as possible to be able to share the issues which have led you to seek counselling.

My counselling room is within an office in a discreet part of the city. There is parking outside the building, so you do not have to worry about finding a parking space. it is a safe and calm space for you to be able to feel as comfortable and at ease as possible. During this session we will discuss together your hopes and expectations of counselling and address any concerns or questions you may have about the counselling process.

It may be that you will only need to come for a short number of sessions and this does work well for many people, in my experience. Alternatively, it may be evident that a longer period of counselling is required, in order to reach your desired goals.

Often, the ability to be able to express emotions and talk through your issues in a safe, confidential space will be all that is needed.

However, I am also able to help you develop the tools and techniques needed to be able to better cope and help yourself when the need arises. Often, it is true that we have these resources within ourselves , but just need a little help to be able to discover them for ourselves.

I am here to support you at this difficult and often vulnerable stage in your life. I cannot change your life for you. However, I will strive to enable you to find new and more helpful perspectives, which will enable you to move forward more hopefully in your life.
