About me

Life can throw up difficulties at any time, the loss of a loved one, a relationship breakdown, a difficult childhood, these events can lead to the development of anxiety, low mood, low self esteem and confidence. I offer one to one confidential counselling. I can work with you short term or long term, and I am here to listen to you without judgement, to help you process and organise some of the issues that are preventing you from moving forward with your life, with an end goal of becoming fully self supporting.

Sometimes talking to a counsellor is the difference that will make the difference. Counselling can help you to understand yourself and your actions better. The process allows you the space to develop alternative coping strategies and alternative thought and behavioural patterns. Alongside my counselling qualifications I am a Certified Neuro Linguistic Programming Master practitioner and Life Coach if you are looking for something more directive to help you achieve your goals. I am experienced in humanistic approaches and evidence based approaches. Taking this step can be daunting and overwhelming, I aim to help you feel at ease, in a safe and confidential environment.
