About me

I am an experienced counsellor working with a wide range of issues.

Whether you are feeling stuck in cyclical patterns that you hope to change, struggling to live with ongoing confused or painful feelings, learning to manage and understand anxiety or just need someone to listen and share, I will work with you to achieve your aims and facilitate a route towards a more fulfilled and productive way of life. Working from a place of compassion, sensitivity and non-judgement.

All of us at one time or another need to make sense of something that we are experiencing or have experienced in life. I respect the autonomy of the client, encouraging you to lead from your chosen pace and depth, working with the view that the relationship between counsellor and client is key to a successful process, the way in which we engage with each other is the key to a successful outcome.

I am a registered member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework, believing strongly in providing a confidential, trusting and respectful relationship with my clients, striving to make a difference and enable change through an empathic and committed professional relationship.

• Feelings of depression, anxiety, stress or confusion

• Destructive behaviours, such as eating disorders, drug or alcohol addiction
