I'm an experienced Person-Centred Counsellor working with adults and young people experiencing, anxiety and stress, low self-esteem, low mood and depression, relationship problems or work issues, death, loss or bereavement or historic abuse.
For the past few years, I have also worked in the voluntary sector with clients who have experienced historic sexual abuse and trauma, as well as for an online charity specifically for woman.
Are you feeling anxious or finding it difficult to cope? Do you lie awake worrying or feel trapped, lost or alone? Perhaps low self-esteem, feelings that you aren't good enough, stop you from living life.
I can help, offering you time and a safe environment with compassion, care and understanding, where you can be honest and share your feelings and worries without fear of being judged. I will help you navigate the best way through life's difficulties by encouraging you to find and trust yourself and the decisions you make.
During our time together, we will work with feelings, emotions and self-esteem to help you grow in confidence and cope with pressures that life may bring. This is your time and space for you to spend on yourself. I will not judge you or force my own ideas on to you, but I will guide and assist you in finding your own solutions.
It is difficult to take that first step and ask for help but I am here to offer the support you are looking for, empowering you to trust your own judgement, be kinder to yourself and believe in yourself.
If you have any questions or would like to book a session, you can send me an email or give me a call on 07847 617052.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Is the cost of living causing you to lie awake worrying?
I used to help people organise their finances so I understand the difficulties of balancing bills and the stress it can bring. I can help you to cope with difficult feelings and stress and financial worry.
Moving to a foreign country?
I experienced first hand how difficult big life changes can be and the time it takes to adapt. Moving abroad can be a stressful time for you and your family, however with the proper support, you can feel more confident about your next steps.
Struggling to have a family?
I appreciate the distress and upset this can cause and am able to support you through the difficult feelings and emotions triggered by this.
These and other life events have enabled me to appreciate the importance of speaking to someone you trust who isn't directly involved but understands what you're going through.
