About me

I am a Relate trained counsellor and supervisor with more than 20 years experience. I can offer an accepting space for individuals, couples or families to explore issues in safety and with confidentiality. If you decide you’d like to come for an initial meeting with me, you would have the opportunity to discuss your needs and a way of working that suits you. I am experienced in many different counselling models, but the most important thing is finding a way that suits you and your needs. I offer both short term and longer term counselling. The length depending on the issues you want to work through.

I work with individuals and also, being a Relate trained counsellor, I have worked extensively with couples and families. I can offer a background of rich experience working with many different issues and problems that can arise between a couple or a family. I work in a way that encourages everyone within the couple or family to have time to speak and be heard.

I am experienced in working alongside people who have problems and difficulties such as anxiety, bereavement, stress, past trauma, or relationship issues for example. If you’d like to discuss ways in which I might be able to help you work through your needs, please contact me either by email or telephone. I’d be happy to discuss your needs with you.
