About me

If you talk about something it gets it out and like a wound, once you start getting the oxygen on it, it starts to heal (Stephen Fry)

Coming to counselling can feel a little daunting; sharing some of our private thoughts and feelings with someone that we do not know can be hard and can feel a little strange. I will help to make you feel comfortable and at ease by offering you a safe, confidential space for you to talk openly, and at a pace that suits you. I am committed to ensuring that you will feel heard, accepted and understood and I will make every effort to appreciate what it is like to be you and to help you understand your feelings and emotions.

I specialise in the following areas although I recognise that each of us is unique and life's challenges and difficulties cannot always be easily described or categorised:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety/Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Trauma
  • Couples counselling
  • Abuse
  • Low self-esteem
  • Bipolar
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Sexuality
  • General counselling

I am able to offer daytime, evening and a limited number of weekend appointments. If you would like to arrange an initial assessment with me I can be contacted in the following ways:-
