About me


Sometimes in life we can reach a point when we feel unable to cope, everyday tasks can suddenly feel overwhelming and life can feel an uphill battle. Maybe you're experiencing, Low self esteem, lacking in confidence, difficulties at work or a need for a change . Or maybe you feel anxious or depressed and struggling to see a way forward. I offer a safe, confidential and quiet space to help you to explore your difficulties with a view to hopefully moving you to a position where you can feel more in control of your life again.

I can facilitate you to understand different aspects of your life, your own behavior and the issues that are preventing you from enjoying life.

  • We can explore both general and specific problems. I have extensive experience working with, Anxiety, Depression, Loss, Relationships/ Family Issues,  Loneliness,  Living with disability, Self-confidence, Self-Esteem,  Work-related stress, Life changes,  Loss of identity.

My core training is in integrative humanistic counselling & Coach, which basically means that I will use techniques from several different types of therapy that I think are most suitable for individual clients. I’ll be focusing a lot on how you see yourself, how you relate in the world, and how I can support you to develop into being more comfortable with yourself and the world around you.

Therapy can seem daunting, and it can be weird sitting in a room with someone independent talking about your thoughts and feelings. It may be a completely new experience for you. You may find that you share more than you expected which is a good thing. You don’t need to carry on trying to do it all by yourself, contact me and we can overcome this together

Counselling is not about giving advice. It is to enable you to find your own path, to address the cause of the problem and not just treat the symptoms.

I believe that everybody has the ability to grow and move forward, although there are times in our lives when we need some assistance and guidance.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

How does Counselling work?
My counselling room is a calm, neutral setting where you can be yourself; you won't be criticised, you won't be judged. I will accept you as you are, and will allow you to express yourself in perhaps a way you haven't been able to before.
I will listen, understand and then reflect that understanding back to you.

How long?
Therapy can be short term lasting for 6 to 8 weeks to long term open ended, we will work at the pace which is beneficial to you.

From my experience as a Counsellor and Coach, I am aware that clients sometimes underestimate the very real benefits that structured counselling and coaching can provide.
