About me

Accepting that you might need some help can be very difficult. But sometimes life can feel overwhelming, and deciding to seek counselling is a difficult but important first step towards understanding what is happening in your life, and how you can move forward.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor, so I draw on a number of different counselling approaches and tools and can offer a diverse approach to suit your individual needs. We will work together to ensure that you are being supported in the way that you feel most comfortable.

I provide a therapeutic environment which is safe, confidential and non-judgemental where you can freely explore your thoughts and feelings. I can offer you insight and perhaps a fresh perspective on your situation which can help you better understand the inner workings of your mind and your emotions.

I work both short and long term - some clients feel able to move forward within a relatively short period, others choose to spend longer looking more deeply into their emotional history and experience. Whatever your preference,I am here to support you as you explore difficult and emotional issues.

Please feel free to contact me for further information or to arrange an initial consultation. Daytime and evening appointments both available.
