About me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor offering a safe, open and non-judgemental space for personal reflection and contemplation around the trials and tribulations of life, past and present, no matter how big or small. I enjoy working with and supporting people from all walks of life to empower, enable and find a way through those difficult times that can often show themselves when we are least expecting it.

I have several years experience working with sexual abuse, trauma, loss and bereavement. I worked for a number of years with Mosaic II supporting adult survivors of sexual abuse and I currently work with Cruse Bereavement Care offering support to clients who have experienced traumatic loss.

I work in an open ended way allowing you the client to determine the pace and direction of travel. We will work together to explore and open your mind to allow you to gain a better understanding of yourself, help make sense of your past experience and explore what that may mean for the future and the choices you have going forwards.

I offer a 30 minute free phone consultation to establish the challenges you are experiencing, begin to understand what you would like from the counselling process and determine whether I am the right counsellor for you. Please email me or leave a message if I am unable to answer the phone and I will contact you as soon as possible.
