About me

My aim as a counsellor is to help my clients gain insight into themselves, their behaviour and their needs. I provide a safe space which is both supportive and confidential. I have worked with clients who are experiencing:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • trauma
  • the effects of abuse
  • separation/divorce
  • loss
  • low self-esteem issues
  • stress
  • women-specific issues
  • menopause

The menopause represents a time of transition in a woman's life. Going through it can be experienced as a challenging and difficult time.

My counselling provides a safe space to explore coping strategies and looks at ways to deal with physical and mental symptoms.

Couple counselling

Whether a couple has been together for a short time or many years, every relationship can face emotional challenges at some point.

Each couple is unique and my couple counselling sessions are structured in a way to help the couple:

  • find ways to communicate with each other in a more constructive way
  • identify external factors which might affect their relationship
  • learn more about why arguments escalate
  • negotiate and resolve conflicts where possible
