About me

I have worked many years as a professional nurse both in hospitals and in the community. I have cared for people of all ages and use this knowledge as a base in my counselling service. My degree in counselling is integrative, which means I draw from many theories to support my client through difficult times. I offer a safe place to talk and listen to what concerns you in a non-judgmental, confidential way sensitive to your needs. I believe everyone needs acceptance and support in difficult times. Together we work to achieve your personal goals. I do not give advice but we collaborate together to see the way forward in your life.

During weekly sessions you decide what is important for you to discuss and we focus on that. In our first session we get to know each other and you decide if you are comfortable to work with me towards a more contented life. Overtime you will become more empowered.

You deserve a time for you.
