About me

Counselling covers many areas and may be helpful in times of anxiety, grief, stress, parenting, relationships, anger management, lack of self esteem, bereavement, depression and family conflict.

I am an experienced counsellor and offer a face to face service on an individual basis, providing a listening and non- judgemental space for adults, young people and children.We will work together building a professional relationship in order for you to find solutions. Counselling is confidential and bound by the standards of the BACP allowing thoughts and feelings to be expressed away from family and friends.
