About me

I have a wealth of experience in generalise anxiety, depression, trauma, divorce l, relationship issues and feeling sad. I work with children, teens, couples and individuals; as I believe there is always hope even in our darkest of moments. I can provide an environment where you can feel safe and at ease, when talking your feelings and needs.

When you begin to talk you may get a ‘light bulb’ moment where you gain some understanding about how your past has affected your present and how these repeating patterns can hold you back from gaining your fullest potential. My focus is on the importance of helping you explore your feelings in a safe environment and caring by giving you space and time. My hope is that through working together you will be able to start to take control of your life, as I believe everyone has the right to feel happy.

Counselling is a unique relationship; based on empathy and understanding.
