About me

A very warm welcome and thank you for visiting my profile.

From a very young age onwards, I experienced very traumatic life events. This resulted in myself having therapy for many years. When I was nearing the end of my therapy and as part of my recovery, I was to make some life goals, the first one was to start a college course. So I started a 6 week short introduction to counselling.

Seven years on I never imagined I would be a fully qualified counsellor/life coach. My core belief is no matter what a person experiences in life, how poorly they become there is hope that you can make it through this journey. In my therapy journey, I expected my therapist to give me the solution to my problems and help me get better, that was not how it was. I had the answers within and my therapist was there to facilitate this, and this is how I will help you as the client - you know yourself better than anyone else!

I am a qualified person-centred therapist and life coach, sessions are lead by you so you that have full control of anything you feel you might like to explore, make sense of in regards to your feelings thoughts and emotions. This is your space and time.

As your therapist, I am there to provide you with a safe confidential in a  non - judgemental environment with a genuine open ear. I consider myself to be able to offer you a friendly warm approach.  I do have a good sense of humour (laughter is therapeutic) I am also a down to earth person which I bring to sessions but with a professional manner.
