About me


While it is good to talk it's even better to be heard, feeling that you have a safe place to explore worries and concerns. With10 years counselling experience I firmly believe that counselling can offer relief from worries and concerns that we all experience from time to time.

Children and teenagers can really benefit from counselling too. They don't  come with their own handbook  and are under such pressure these days. Small problems can feel that they are getting out of control  leading to more serious issues. Bullying, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, various forms of self harming are among a variety of problems that parents can find themselves coping with.  Youngsters generally respond well to counselling.

Issues can surround our health such as depression and anxiety or centre on relationships with partners, parents or children. Some times they come with life changes such as a new arrival, change of job or retirement. A few counselling sessions can often help relieve distress re establishing harmony and a sense of well being

Experience has taught me that no one  theory meets all requirements as our problems are unique. I use a number of methods to help find the best approach for you. Sessions are flexible and booked by you as you require them.

Making the first move is usually the most difficult. Please call or email for an initial chat with no obligation.
