About me

On our journey we often become lost and caught up in negative thoughts and feelings which can change our perception of life and take us out of balance. This can create problems in our relationships which may lead to anxiety, depression or low self-esteem that can affect our well-being.

I offer counselling with a holistic approach by helping you to access your own inherent ability to grow and develop, thus empowering you to use your own inner wisdom to live a more fulfilling way of being and transforming the way you experience your life.

I will support you to better understand the patterns in your life which are causing you distress. This will help to facilitate insight into the core of your thinking, your self belief, your behaviour and your imposed limitations.  I believe past experiences shape our internal structures and affect how we view ourselves within our relationships and society.

I offer you a safe, non judgemental, confidential and trusting environment where you will be listened to with warmth, compassion, empathy and acceptance. This will allow you to explore and understand your issues more deeply, build resilience and empower positive transformation to enable you to live a more fulfilling way.

I am an Integrative Counsellor which means I embrace several models and skills that help me to adapt my approach to suit your individual needs. My experience and training enables me to work to a specific focus/goal orientated, as well as exploring personal challenges at a deeper level.

Having a calm, empathic and honest approach, I have extensive experience of empowering and supporting change within my clients.

How to get started

I understand how difficult it is to find the right counsellor so I invite you to arrange a free 30 minute session with me so that you can assess how comfortable you will feel working with me and if you would like to enter into a counselling relationship with me. Please feel free to contact me by telephone or email me.
