About me

Most people run into trouble at sometimes in life, which can be difficult to deal with alone.

If you have nobody you feel you can confide in, seeking counselling support may be an attractive option because of privacy and confidentiality, but also because it is based on having the support of a non-judgemental listener - a counsellor.

As a counsellor, my aim is to listen to you about your situation without judging and also offering the understanding that is needed to help get you moving in the direction you prefer.

The relationship in counselling is something that we create together. The shape it takes is determined by our personalities and what it is you want from counselling. I will help you clarify what you want to get away from, and at some point, you will see which direction you are going in. I will be with you on your journey, so you are not alone and we are both working towards the same goal.

At first, I will listen to you, and when working together feels comfortable, I will ask questions to help you discover enough about your situation to see it more objectively.

I understand that entering counselling can be challenging, but will have sensitivity towards you to look at how you see everything.

Text or email me to arrange a free 30-minute phone call or video session to see what it might be like to talk with me.
