About me

I offer counselling to adults, young people and couples who may be feeling worried, distressed or stuck in their lives.

My aim is to help them gain an insight into what is happening - and how they are dealing with it. This brings about a new sense of self, a self-awareness, which then enables them to work through and overcome whatever the challenges might be.

I provide a safe space which is both supportive and confidential. I work with clients who are experiencing:

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

Couples 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 couples 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

What to do to get started

You can call, text or email me. I offer a free initial 20 minute session. This gives you the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have to begin with.
