About me

Feeling Depressed or Anxious usually signals that your needs are not being met & I'm widely experienced to support you in discovering them.  You may want to address difficulties in your relationship, at work, within your family,  as a parent, your friends or even the way you see yourself, all of which I can support you with.

As well as this, I also specialise working with those who have had difficult family, childhood and/or relationship histories including; Challenging/Toxic Family Dynamics, Abuse (inc. Narcissistic) Bullying (child/work/adult), Domestic Violence/Stalking, Assaults & Trauma Life Events.

Our history shapes us & can lead to Self-Doubt, People-Pleasing, Attracting Entitled People, Guilt, Poor Boundaries, Poor Self-Esteem, Fear of Relationships, Trauma Responses (PTSD) & feeling Powerless to make a Change.

I offer a Kind, Caring & Safe Space for you to discover once and for all exactly what is holding you back.  I'll help you unpick some of the unhelpful perceptions you probably have of yourself & support you to discover your True Potential. You are far more capable that you realise and I'll  share my knoweldge & expertise to help get you there.

I am a genuine and down-to-Earth person &  know making that first contact can be a challenge. Why not start with an email or text? You can then meet me online or over the phone for a FREE 30 minute consultation and if you decide to, have sessions Online Across The UK or Face to Face in Mansfield.  I am here to help and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
