Counsellor - Dip Couns (MNCS)

About me

Are you feeling anxious about issues in your life that you want to to talk about? Is something from your past, or something happening today troubling your sense of self and you want some support with dealing with it? Do you feel like you don’t know yourself and want to gain a deeper insight into who you are? 

I offer a caring and supportive counselling service that is focused on developing a deeper personal understanding of who you are. I’m interested in the self and how it forms over a lifetime, affecting how you think, feel and behave today. 

Being able to talk to someone in counselling about what is going on in your life and mind can be very important. Whether it’s about anxiety, depression, trauma, family problems or issues related to identity. You will get the opportunity to focus closely on what is bothering you, with someone who is professionally trained, experienced and non-judgmental. Someone who will be with you on this journey into self discovery, supporting you as you navigate the bumpy road that life can sometimes be.
