About me

I am a 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 Young People from the age of 11 years with a view to building self esteem, development of abilities to cope with anxieties, bullying and peer pressure. I have a wealth of experience dealing with Young People who may be having suicidal thoughts, or may be undertaking some sort of self harm. I have experience with running anger management workshops and can work with anger issues on a one to one basis too.

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.
