About me

Hello, I am a friendly, integrative counsellor for all people from all walks of life. I offer one to one counselling to men, women, the elderly, teenagers and children in a safe confidential setting where you can be yourself, be heard and be understood. I also offer a walk and talk therapy along the beach using mindfulness and the natural environment to facilitate psychological and physical well-being or over a simple coffee in a cafe, whatever suits your needs.

It can be a scary experience approaching a counsellor, for some maybe a massive step. Carrying unresolved problems around with us from the past or present can affect our lives in the present causing distress for ourselves and others, but once these issues are shared it can creates a massive feeling of relief. I am a trustworthy, non-judgemental, understanding and accepting counsellor regardless of your circumstances. I will listen and work with you to help you overcome your burdens.

I have British Sign Language skills and an understanding of the Deaf culture and community. I am aware of the communication barriers Deaf/deaf people often face during therapy and the confidentiality issues of having an interpreter in the room. I can reassure you that an interpreter will not be needed in my sessions.

I have counselling experience in both primary and secondary schools working on self-confidence, anxiety, bullying and low moods. I find teenagers the most challenging but rewarding to work with. I have also counselled the elderly and this has proven to be most beneficial to their mental health and well-being. I have 2 years of bereavement counselling experience and have also covered the most common mental health issues of today, these being anxiety and depression. It is always a pleasure seeing my clients change for the better and leave my sessions feeling more satisfied and positive about them selves and their lives. This is what makes my job worth while.

The purpose of counselling is to help you gain an insight into your life and achieve personal goals. Counselling provides hope and support, it helps you see things more clearly, resolving ongoing issues, creating a more satisfied life.

It can help with self-defeating behaviours or habits and communicating more effectively with others. It can also help with management of painful emotions, including, depression, anger, anxiety or other common mental health issues, thus increasing your confidence and decision making skills.

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice.

If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
