About me

I have many years of experience working with children and young people as well as adults. 

I can help children reduce their anxiety and build their self esteem as well as supporting them in making sense of changes and loss they might have experienced. I build trust quickly allowing the young person to express themselves more freely. I use creative and play therapy to support children/young people.

As an adult, you might be struggling with anxiety, depression and/or low self esteem which might be stopping you living the life you want to live. I will work with you to try and change this. I can support you through loss, whether it be from bereavement, separation/divorce or changes in your job/career situation, friendship or family.

I can help you let go of negative self beliefs so that you can become more authentic and relaxed with who you are and less worried about what people think of you. This can be very freeing, allowing you to make positive changes in your life. 

I trained as a person centred counsellor, which means to me, being open & honest whilst trying not to judge a client, as well as showing empathy to what is shared with me. I can build trust quickly by showing these qualities. 

Having a background in mentoring and teaching for over thirty years, I can use this experience in the counselling room to support you in making changes more quickly. However, it is always you, the client, who leads every session we have. 

Working together we can try and make sense of what issues you bring to counselling.
