I am an experienced Counsellor who has been published by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I believe in affordable, individual therapy that empowers people to change their lives for the better.
You may be finding things very difficult right now and feel that it’s the time to ask for help. You may feel anxious and worried all the time, you may feel low and hopeless. Something may have happened in your life that has left you feeling distressed or confused, or perhaps you just need to talk and be truly heard and understood. If any of this sounds familiar, counselling may be for you.
Counselling can truly change lives at times when nothing seems possible.
If you are worried that counselling is too expensive and not something you can realistically afford, please don't be. My aim is to help people access counselling regardless of their financial situation, so please do contact me if you have any worries about accessing counselling and we will work together to make it happen for you.
I offer a free 50 minute consultation to enable you to get a sense of what counselling entails and to talk about what you are looking to gain from it. I strongly believe that you should feel happy and comfortable with whoever you choose as a counsellor and this is an opportunity for you to meet me and see if I am right for you.
I am an integrative counsellor. I believe that there is no one type of therapy that fits all clients, and I will work with you to find what is right for you.
Sessions are 50 minutes and take place on a weekly basis. They are usually at the same time and on the same day each week, but I understand that this isn't always possible and I will endeavour to accommodate any changes due to childcare needs or shift work.

Asking for and finding help when you are struggling can be an incredibly difficult thing to do.
