About me

Most people run into trouble at some times in life, which they find 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.

As a counsellor, my aim is that we will work together so that you find a way of overcoming your problems which is self-empowering and helps you gain control so you can stay trouble-free.

I will listen to you about your situation without judging: offering the understanding that is needed to get you moving in the direction you prefer.

I am caring, calm, softly-spoken, and gentle.

I understand that entering counselling can feel challenging, but if you need to enlist the support of an experienced counsellor who is easy to work with, please get in touch.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Certificate in Counselling Studies 2014, CPCAB

I undertake ongoing Continual Professional Development courses, of which there are too many to list on here.

I have worked for a number of years in a family support centre and an NHS Occupational Health role, and prior to that, have worked in learning disabilities. This means I have experience in a wide range of issues. However, Mostly I find myself working with depression, anxiety and loneliness.
