About me

Welcome

You have most probably come across this page as you are thinking about accessing counselling for yourself or for someone else.

Counselling offers you the space to explore issues that are causing you distress, confusion or concern; with someone who will not tell you what to do, judge or reproach you.

As a BACP Registered Counsellor, I can help you to understand yourself and your feelings and emotions, by encouraging you to explore your options in a safe and trusting environment. Most importantly I will will help you to understand why you are feeling a certain way, how your problems arose and help you to learn how to avoid similar problems arising again.

I appreciate that accessing Counselling can be a scary and daunting prospect therefore, initially I will offer you a no obligation consultation session so that we can meet and discuss the difficulties that you are currently facing.

About Me

I am a qualified and experienced BACP Registered Counsellor offering Person Centered Counselling and CBT for Young People (Aged 16+), Adults and Couples from a private, confidential clinic in Leominster, Herefordshire.

I have had experience of working with many difficulties including but not limited to Anxiety, Depression, Domestic Violence, Stress, Abuse and Neglect, Relationship issues, Separation and Divorce, Bereavement, Sexual Abuse, Low Self-Esteem, Panic Disorder, Stress, Anger, Postnatal Depression, Family issues, Phobias and Low Confidence. There will be very little I will be unable to help you with.

I am based in Leominster, Herefordshire in a confidential and comfortable counselling room. I do not have disabled access currently however I can provide telephone/video therapy or can do home visits if this suits you better.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have using the 'Email me' button on this site or the contact form on my website.
