About me

I am an accredited counsellor with over 10 years experience who likes to encourage growth and development within an individual. To do this I focus on self-development and I seek to help individuals recognise their strengths, creativity and choices.

I also specialise in working with clients to build self esteem, develop abilities to cope with anxieties and promote their strengths. I have a wealth of experience dealing with a wide variety of clients.

Exploration of difficult issues can be frightening so together we can explore them in a non judgemental way and facilitate change by encouragement and self awareness. I can assist individuals in making sense of confusing or overwhelming emotions, help them to develop resources to cope, gain a deeper understanding of self and how they may relate to others.

I run a team of counsellors who have great versatility across a wide number of issues and have a good range of availability. This service is vetted by me and each counsellor has to complete a robust assessment process prior to being accepted. So if I can't fit you in, there is always someone within the service that can.
