About me

Thank you for visiting my profile. I know it can feel scary and nerve wracking talking to a complete stranger about what's bothering you, but don't worry, you're in safe hands and together we can explore what's happening for you at a pace to suit you.

You are the expert on you and what's happening in your life, but sometimes you may feel you need somebody to actively listen to how you are feeling so that you can re-evaluate your choices, decisions, actions and feelings.

Person-centred counselling is a non-directive client lead talking therapy; you choose what you want to talk about. It focuses on the here and now. The sessions provide you with a safe and confidential environment for you talk.

I work with children & young people, families, adults and couples at my private practice. They present with a variety of issues from exam stress, anxiety, depression, peer pressure, bereavement, infidelity and friendship issues, to abuse and domestic violence, and family relationships.

When appropriate I incorporate play therapy or aspects of CBT as part of the sessions.

I have my own counselling room (separate from the main house) offering a safe, comfortable and relaxing environment for you to talk about what is important to you at that moment. I'm situated close to junction 4 of the M18, with off-road parking.

I attend supervision once a month and am a registered member of the BACP.
