You may be considering counselling because of difficult experiences you have been going through, such as a relationship difficulties,  infertility issues, bereavement/loss, work challenges or redundancy.  You may require support dealing with feelings of stress, worry anxiety, sadness, depression, or low self-esteem.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and I believe that every person is unique and so are their circumstances, which is why I work holistically and individually with each of my client using integrative approaches, with the focus always being on the individual’s needs.

I have spent over 10 years in senior management and I started my journey of self-development in 2008. I undertake regular supervision and I continue with ongoing professional and personal development, which allows me to help others through the sometimes difficult journey of life and enables them to move positively into a better quality of life.
