About me

Counselling is a journey you take to begin to find a new self awareness, clarity and can help you continue your life in a more emotionally healthier way.

At points in our lives we sometimes feel helpless or hopeless. Sometimes we struggle with anxiety, relationships, work, family, loss or you may have feelings of nothingness and not understand why.
We face many challenges. You may be facing certain difficulties or are overwhelmed with your feelings, life, family, work or something else, then I can offer you time and a safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings to help you make sense of your life and experiences.

I will offer you a warm, non judgemental, safe and confidential space which in turn, will offer you the opportunity to talk about what ever you choose to.

I believe that the relationship between my client and myself is an important part of our work together and therefore, it is important that it feels right for you also.

I also offer 'Walk and Talk' sessions in some of our local parks, Royal parks and natural areas. Being outside with nature can be an organic place to reflect and explore as well as heal and help you balance emotionally. I am happy to walk, talk and listen in all weathers.
