About me

Do you feel you are struggling? has life thrown up things you hadn’t expected? Life can be difficult and challenging, especially in this current climate, you may be feeling different emotions and trying to cope in your own way. It may be that you have had a bereavement, you may be suffering from anxiety or even having panic attacks. Do you find it difficult to switch off your mind at night and have trouble sleeping or are you having issues in your relationships or work.

If you feel you want to unpick your thoughts and change the way you are thinking, then counselling could help you. Having counselling may seem daunting, but you have made the first step in looking at this web site.

As a qualified integrative counsellor, I can offer you a safe and secure place to talk, where you can feel understood and accepted. I believe that trust and the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is essential to the work we do. We can explore your difficult thoughts and feelings that are affecting you and your everyday life, all in a confidential setting.

I can offer you a variety of ways to help you explore your difficulties. My approach is to empower you, to help you make sense of what is going on and assist you in finding out what helps you to cope and have a better life. This can be through face to face sessions, on-line or telephone counselling, whatever suits you best. I offer both short term counselling and long-term open ended counselling to adults.

I regularly attend CPD workshops and supervision to enhance my practice. I am fully insured and registered with the DBS update service.

​I offer Daytime, Evenings and Saturday Morning appointments.
