About me


Enabling a person to build up their self esteem and develop self awareness helps them to be more confident to make decisions.  Feeling better equipped to make decisions happens by reflecting on and challenging existing behaviours, thoughts and feelings.  Some existing behaviours are simply outdated or just not relevant to a particular situation.  What clothes do you have in your wardrobe that are ten, twenty or thirty years old?  Is it time to de-clutter your ‘behaviour’ wardrobe?  Sift through the ones that are outdated, passed on, not relevant anymore. Working as an integrative Counsellor, I draw on several theories and techniques to support each client with a unique therapy.  Offering a safe, confidential space to help you develop or rediscover a strong sense of self to support this personal growth.


My specialism is bereavement and loss.

The process of grief is widely misunderstood and often underestimated.  I specialise in enabling people to adjust following bereavement and loss, focusing on what it is like to be human in a world where time to process grief is usually very limited.

I recognise that it sometimes takes courage to enquire about counselling so I try to be flexible with regard to session times and also to see clients as soon as possible.  I offer a free initial assessment where you will be able to tell me why you are here and what you are hoping to get from the counselling.  We can discuss any queries you may have about the counselling process and I will ask you to complete a short questionnaire.  The rapport that develops between you and your counsellor is the most important aspect of counselling.

Following this, if you wish to continue, we can discuss when and how often you would like to come.

If after your free no obligation initial consultation, I feel I can help you and you choose to work with me, we will begin with a 90 minute assessment session then decide how we proceed.  Following sessions will last 50 minutes.  Usually, 6-12 sessions are enough but sometimes longer term is more effective.

Normally £38 per 50 minute session with some concessions available.
