About me


I am a qualified counsellor and pychotherapist and have been practicing for 21 years.  I am experienced in working with women and men of many different lifestyles and cultural heritages.   I work with adults, adolescents, children, families and couples either on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.

To help you decide if you would like to begin counselling with me, I offer a free initial pre-counselling meeting, with no charge or committment at this stage.

Difficulties that I have helped people with include low self confidence, anxieties and fears including panic attacks, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement and other losses, domestic violence and other forms of abuse, anger, troubling effects of past experiences, concerns relating to sex and sexuality, problems sleeping or eating and many others.

I work with people in a variety of ways depending on a person's individual needs but which are based on establishing a trusting, judgement free relationship with you which enables you to talk about and explore the things you are finding difficult.   Hopefully this will enable you to gain new insights into your life and discover a more satisfying way of living.

If you would like to speak to me or arrange an initial, pre-counselling meeting, please either ring or email me.
