About me

Hi, As we go through our normal lives, we'll all have good and bad days, the struggle is when we're overloaded, our emotional state may feel strange to us.

Feeling less confident than you used to? don't recognise who you are at the moment, anxiety can't be seen but is definitely felt, it is accountable for causing irritability, anger, sadness and depression,its exhausting and our need for a  "Duvet Day", every day can be strong. Physically it can disrupt our day to day lives whether at work or at play.

Talking to someone might be just what you need, you can be yourself in safe place, and with no judgement.I offer a warm, friendly and safe environment for you to explore all your unanswered questions, thoughts feelings and emotions.

  • Feeling controlled in an unhappy relationship.
  • Suffered personal injury or loss that's changed the way you look and feel about yourself.
  • Do you think you may suffer with an eating disorder.
  • Trouble in the work place or at school coping with bullies.
  • Lost the most important person in your life.

    I am a member of the BACP and work within their ethical frame work of being person centred, this means that you are in control of your journey.
    I offer short or long term counselling depending on your own personal needs and requirements.

    I attend supervision regularly, and keep myself up to date with training courses, current practices and techniques.

If you'd like to ask any questions about my counselling service please email or phone I will always reply.
