About me

How counselling can help

When things are troubling you e.g. anxieties, worries, sadness,sometimes it is hard to know what to do to improve things. Talking through your difficulties can help you to gain insight and find a way forward. I am a  non judgemental, empathetic listener.

What to expect in your first session

In the introductory session we can look at what is troubling you and how counselling could help.

About Me

I see clients as unique individuals with differing life experiences which can be challenging to manage. Facing change in our lives can be daunting. When difficulties arise it can be helpful to have support to gain insight and find a way forward. I offer a warm, open, non-judgemental and confidential safe space through gentle challenge in a supportive therapeutic relationship. Talking through thoughts, feelings, behaviour and emotions. I am an Integrative Counsellor - blending different counselling approaches including person centred, psychodynamic, existential and cognitive behavioural therapy. I am interested in the mind, body, soul connection and bringing this into awareness can help to make sense of issues from the past affecting the present and helping with everyday issues and problems.
