About me

Getting the courage to even contemplate talking through issues causing distress can be incredibly challenging, finding yourself reading this suggests you have taken the first steps along the path to relieve your pain.

Often in our lives, we push away feelings of sadness and unhappiness, telling others that we are 'fine'.

Yet beneath this can be great sadness, fears and worries, issues from our past or challenges from the present, difficulties with relationships, grief, loss, anxiety or anger. Even when we do find this space in relationships it is not unusual to censor the things we say. We sometimes feel unable to share the truth of these feelings with anyone else, even those closest to us, for fear of hurting or upsetting them or being judged if they were to know how we really feel.

I provide a safe, therapeutic space where you will be given time to work through any of the challenges that you face. I work from a humanistic perspective, and with whatever you bring. I will work alongside you to support you to explore your difficulties.

The room I use has good public transport links from Walsall, Brownhills, Bloxwich and surrounding areas. I offer sessions on a Saturday morning and late afternoon/early evening.
