About me

If you are feeling that you struggling with anxiety ( GAD, OCD or health anxiety for example ) depression or are generally feeling stressed and dissatisfied then counselling might offer you the chance to talk about how you feel, and the changes you would like to make in your life.
I specialise in working with children and young people and undertake work in schools. I am a group facilitator for mental health issues and also work specifically with bereavement and grief .

I am a fully trained counsellor who has studied TA, Gestalt and person centred therapies, as well as CBT so I would aim to use these with you where appropriate. I work with both adults and children and can tailor sessions to suit your specific needs. I provide a welcoming space where you can talk about your thoughts and feelings without fear of being judged or told what to do.

I work with many issues including relationships, grief, depression, bi polar and anxiety, and believe that people can find their own solutions with support and understanding.

I am a member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework to ensure the best service for you.
