About me

I have been counselling for ten years and have worked within the NHS with GP referrals, and with the bereavement counselling charity Cruse. In that time I have worked with people of all ages and backgrounds with a wide range of issues and difficulties. Some examples are

  • bereavement and loss
  • adult survivors of sexual abuse
  • work related stress and redundancy
  • family relationship problems.

Counselling can help you move forward. I won't tell you what to do but I will work with you in a focussed way to help you find a way through your difficulties.

Our relationship is key so feeling able to talk to me is really important. You can phone or email me before making a decision without any obligation, and you can have a look at my website to find out a bit more about me.

Sessions last an hour and can be booked as a single session.   When we first meet we will discuss what you would like to get out of counselling and if we work over a number of sessions, usually on a weekly or fortnightly basis, we will check how it feels for you.

If you phone or email and I'm not available, I will get back to you as soon as I can.
