About me

Take the next Step


Just arriving here has taken courage, and you are probably here because you would like help with something?

It may be something you are struggling with, now or even in the past. 

Whatever the issues, Counselling offers you the space and time to focus on the things bothering you. 

You need the chance to talk.

My clients describe me as a warm, caring, and welcoming person. Someone who understands, first hand, that it can be difficult to talk about sensitive issues and the (sometimes unintended) effects these can have on you and others. Everyone's experiences are as unique as they are, my experience has given me valuable insight.

Whether you are struggling with stress or worry, feelings of shame or guilt or one of the many other issues commonly felt throughout our lives, you do not need to face them alone. 

I am here to listen to you. About your feelings, thoughts, or worries, without judging you, and to respect that you are an individual with your own fears, perspective and apprehensions. 

Now is the time to take a first step. I will provide you with a safe, accepting, and supportive place to explore thoughts and feelings in your own time. 

You will learn to understand yourself better, identify where and if change needs to happen and enable yourself to communicate better. 

This will help you to become more confident, kinder to yourself, and calmer; leading to a happier life.

Please, take the first step, either give me a call (or email me) if you would like to have a chat (free of charge or obligation) about what to expect during counselling and whether it feels like it’s a safe space for you.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
