I am a warm and experienced counsellor who helps you to explore any personal difficulties or unhelpful feelings/behaviours you may be experiencing in life to help improve your overall well-being.
By working together in a safe and professional setting, I can help you to gain clarity and understanding about yourself or issues that concern you so you are able to move forward in life, make new choices and achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
I offer a free 15 minute 'meet me' consultation as I feel the quality of the relationship between us is vital for positive outcomes in counselling.

Child Related Issues
Bereavement & Loss
Trauma & PTSD
