About me

I believe that by providing you with the opportunity to talk openly and explore your feelings and emotions in a confidential setting, we can work together to make positive changes in your life. Whether you are struggling with your relationships, finding it hard to manage your Anger or have simply recognised that life has become a chore, counselling may be able to help.

As young children we learn strategies to help us cope but these can become unhelpful in later years. Together, and at your pace, we will look at what is troubling you and the possible reasons for it, allowing you the opportunity to have a better insight into yourself and your relationships with others.

I am a fully qualified and experienced, Person Centred Counsellor.  I use a variety of theories and skills to help you recognise the ways in which you relate to certain situations and how behaviours can be changed in order to enhance your life.

If you are currently living with anxiety, depression, or recognise that your thoughts have become negative and seem to have 'taken control', Mindfulness may be a useful tool for you to learn. If this sounds of interest and you would like to know more about it, please check out the Mindfulness page on my website .(

As a working mum, I understand the pressures that life can bring to us all at certain times and the importance of taking some 'time out' to reflect. Working from my home allows me to offer a safe, confidential environment for you to work through your difficulties, whatever they may be, without feeling judged.

With 7 years experience working as a school counsellor I am also able to empathise and relate to the challenges that our Young People and Children are facing. I offer a creative and relaxed space for them to start to understand what is making their life difficult and learn new techniques and coping strategies.

I have many years experience helping clients to overcome difficulties with Anger Management, Depression, Anxiety and Bereavement. I am also experienced in working with people living with Autism and Special Educational Needs.

As a BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) Accredited counsellor, I abide by their Code of Ethics and this ensures that we will be working safely together.

I offer counselling on a 1:1 basis to Adults, Young People and Children.

I am also able to offer a Supervision service to counsellors and those working in caring professions.

Please contact me for further details or to discuss your individual needs.
