About me

How counselling works, and why it helps:

Talking through problems and difficult feelings in your own head can feel like going round in circles. It can also be a lonely and frightening experience. Speaking to a trained, experienced counsellor in complete privacy and confidence can help you find the courage to face and explore difficult issues - and to discover solutions and new perspectives that are uniquely right for you as an individual, because no-one else is the same as you. You will not be told what someone else in your circumstances would or should do; you will be helped to find your own answers. You will be offered warmth, respect,support and understanding  no matter what your concerns or your beliefs may be. Being able to express feelings that are hard to talk about [even with family or friends] in a safe space can be the first step towards positive change that once seemed impossible. I work with individual clients but not with couples.

About me

I am a person centred counsellor with experience in the following areas: relationship difficulties, low self esteem, abuse, domestic violence, and alcohol related problems.I have a wide and varied life and work experience which makes me respectful, non-judgmental, approachable and down to earth. I believe in a holistic approach to well being - mind, body and spirit work together. If you have specific goals in mind, then with your permission we can work together using very effective CBT techniques.I work for a charity as well as counselling privately.
