About me

Hi, I am so pleased you have chosen to look at my profile, as this means you are already starting to take positive steps to address your situation and to improve your life.

I am a qualified Counsellor with extensive experience working with adults on a short term and open ended basis. I offer a confidential and supportive environment in which you can feel completely at ease to talk about your thoughts and feelings – and be understood. Talking with an experienced counsellor, who won’t judge, accepts your feelings and is able to listen, can provide a life enhancing experience. At your pace, I offer the supported space in which to find a clearer understanding of yourself, and to safely work through difficult feelings and emotional distress.

Ultimately, my priority is to help you to achieve personal growth and to be happier (what-ever that may mean for you). I have helped many people with a diverse range of issues, including:-

Anxiety ● Stress ● Depression ● Low Self-Esteem ● Life Transitions (including midlife crisis and retirement) ● Relationships Issues (home and work) ● Eating Disorders ● Sexuality and Sexual Identity ● Trauma ● Bullying ● Dyslexia ● Self- Destructive Behaviour ● Bereavement and Loss.

Additionally, I have an interest in working with issues around Dyslexia, Bullying (in the work pelace, at home or in the social setting) and Work Related pressures/stress.

About me

Background by a broad ranging and successful careers working in both the private and public sector, a time came when I just didn't feel fulfilled anymore. I felt something needed to change, and for the better. It was a soul searching episode filled with anxiety and uncertainty. What was this feeling all about? Worryingly, how would my perceived sense of selfishness in wanting to change my life, impact upon those around me? Suffice to say, there were many good reasons to stay as I was. Yet, if I did nothing where was I going to end up? Clearly, something needed to happen to bring about change, toward finding happier dimensions in my life. Having a keen interest in people and the world of therapy, I decided to take the plunge. There was no turning back as I pursued my ambition training for many years. It was a passionate endeavour that expanded my world, and led me now to be successfully working as an experienced Counsellor in private practice.
