About me

Struggling to make sense of things or finding it difficult to cope?

Counselling can help you come to terms with things, and make real changes in your life.

I provide a warm, supportive safe space which is non-judgmental and confidential.

Whether your reasons for seeking counselling stem from past traumas or current struggles

My sense is that when we feel overwhelmed, we often cannot see the solutions that are within our grasp and thus we remain stuck. I also firmly believe that many of life’s problems can be alleviated by sharing them with someone who is trained to listen

I am a big believer in going at a pace that is comfortable for you.  Giant leaps all begin with gentle steps.

I know that coming to Counselling can seem daunting but I like to consider myself to be  a very approachable person.

I specialise in online and telephone counselling.  Working via various remote sources including: Zoom, VSee, Facetime, WhatsApp, secure email IM & Telephone.

Online counselling is equally as effective as face to face

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience.
