I am an experienced counsellor and psychosexual therapist. My background is in midwifery and women's health and I have long experience working with teenage clients and family problems.
I am the person to see if you have issues with bereavement, depression, relationships, separation or divorce, work based problems and coping with the changes that life throws at us.
For those who have low self esteem or anxiety we can work together to improve your situation.
I also use EFT or tapping to help if your problem is addiction, phobias, anger management or PTSD.
I work with an open mind and will support you in improving your life whatever you feel is the problem. Ex-offenders welcome.
Couples counselling at any stage of your relationship is something I can assist with as a couple or single, Gay,lesbian, Bi or trans.
If you want life to improve we can work together on any issue.

£30 an hour. If you want me to come to you, then I may request a contribution towards petrol costs, depending on distance.
In my private life I am a Mum of two and grandmother of 7 and great Grandma of two. These family members keep me up to date with current problems and stresses from trying to get car insurance, to the job/ apprenticeship difficulties, financial problems, relationships, bullying, pressures, justice, as well as the joys and successes that also appear.
My passions are reading and the theatre, especially amateur and semi-professional groups.
