About me

They say that time changes things but sometimes, we need to actively create changes ourselves, in order to get the kind of life that we want. I know from my own experiences how hard it can be to find a way forward when nothing seems to be going right and I saw for myself how useful it was to have a neutral person, who I could work with on overcoming obstacles in my way to a better and more fulfilling life.

So whether you are in the midst of a crisis, experiencing feelings of dissatisfaction or finding yourself repeating patterns that lead you nowhere I provide a calm, safe space, where you can talk confidentially about whatever is troubling you. I know that the prospect of seeking a counsellor can be daunting and perhaps even bewildering so I offer a FREE introductory session, where you can ask me any questions you have about counselling and I can tell you a little bit about what you can expect from working with me.

I aim to give you the time and support that you need to explore your personal story in your own time and at your own pace. Following this initial session, there is no obligation to see me again. I know that successful outcome of counselling depends very much on the relationship between client and counsellor so it is important that you choose someone you think you can trust and be able to work with.
