We aim to provide our clients with a safe, confidential space where a person can be honest and be themselves.

I have been working as a Counsellor for approx 5 years and within the helping professions for 15 including mental health supports, youth work, family work and working within the homeless and care sector.

I qualified in 2013 as an Integrative Counsellor and have since this gained a wealth of training and experience.

Including but not exclusively:
