I'm a Integrative Counsellor (MNCS) with experience in working with people who have suffered bereavement, domestic violence, anxiety, phobias, work issues, relationship breakdowns, loss of job, retirement, self-esteem and eating disorders to name a few.
I work out of a private and comfortable Cabin in the garden, where I offer a safe space and will listen to you, without judgement. We can work towards exploring and reflecting on anything that matters to you, that is causing you upset or worry so please reach out to see if we can work together.
I believe everyone deserves to feel happy and contented in life. Sometimes there are challenges along the way which we need help with. I aim to empower you to understand your emotional reactions and overcome these obstacles. I like to work in an Integrative way, in what I feel will suit your needs, and personality, I have an enhanced DBS and insurance.
I'm very easy to talk to, relaxed and down to earth, so if you have any questions about counselling, or you'd like to arrange a free 15 minute introductory call then please get in touch today.
