About me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor, based in Shrewsbury town centre, at The Centre For Integral Health. I also volunteer at a nearby counselling service.

I have experience working with issues such as;

Anxiety and depression

Self esteem/ confidence

Anger issues




Relational issues


This is a shortened list, I also work in many other areas, described below.

How I work

Person Centred Therapy is built upon the relationship between counsellor and client, I will act as an empathetic facilitator listening without judgement, and acknowledging your experiences without input. I believe that you have the ability to thrive at life and I am passionate about supporting your self discovery.

Person Centred Therapy is a non directive approach, this means that I will not come to the sessions with an agenda. It's a fluid way of working ensuring all of your challenges are talked through, whether they are different from existing topics or not. It is also a way of working by encouraging and empowering you to become in control of your life. We will work in the here and now and will discuss ways of being present rather than consumed with the past or future.

I am a friendly, approachable, considerate person and offer confidential support without judgement.

Further information

What clients have said

"You completely saved my life... I was stuck in the deepest darkest rut, that I've ever been stuck in and didnt think I'd ever get better."

" I thought there was no light at the end of the tunnel not even a flicker, yet you pulled me up and got me back on track again and now I'm doing things for me, I'm fitter than I've ever been  and soon I'll be more skilled than I've ever been."

"You never gave up on me, and every time I saw you it was like an immense weight had been lifted off of my chest for the first time in my life."
