About me

Talking about the issues you face can lead to positive and permanent changes in your life.

I offer a safe and confidential place for you to talk about the difficulties you are facing. These could be new, or issues that you've struggled with for a long time. You might simply be feeling that you are not living the life you want to live, or you might be experiencing some of the following:

  • anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, relationship / family issues, compulsive behaviour, physical symptoms or stress.
  • being cut off from your feelings and / or overwhelmed by them.
  • being in a personal crisis or feeling stuck, empty or without meaning in your life.
  • low self esteem or feeling like deep down, there is something wrong with you.
  • trauma or other issues from your childhood.

Talking to a skilled professional can help with what feels confusing, painful or distressing.

I will listen attentively, help you to reflect on what is happening and provide guidance. This can enable you to deal with and resolve the issues at the core of the disturbance you are experiencing, as well as helping you to live a more fulfilling life.

My focus is on helping you to move towards greater choice and lasting, positive change. I will support you to find your own answers and solutions and I will tailor our sessions to meet your unique needs.

My approach is holistic in that it includes every aspect of your being (body, feelings, mind, sexuality, spirit). We all have the potential to open to the wholeness that lies at the core of our being and to live life fully. That potential is what I am passionate about and in particular, what gets in the way of it for you, in your unique life. Everything can be included in the work we do together and nothing is taboo.

I am a full accredited member of UKCP, I work to their professional, ethical guidelines and I am in regular supervision.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

There are steps up to the front door of the building but a side door is accessible. My office is on the first floor with lift access.
