About me

Are you going through a difficult time in your life? Maybe this is to do with work, relationships or perhaps, you don’t know the actual reason.  You might be feeling stress, anxiety, panic, anger, loss or depression.

I can offer you the opportunity of talking confidentially to share the burden of whatever is on your mind. I can give you space for you to understand yourself and explore how you might move into a better place.

I can meet with you for an initial free 30 minute assessment session to decide between us, if counselling feels right for you. Please feel free to contact me for an informal chat about how counselling may be able to help you.
