About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor & psychotherapist working within East Belfast. I work with adults, adolescents and children (4+).

Adults, children and adolescents all need a space to explore and express their experiences. However, for some, this tends to be more difficult as they struggle to understand what they're feeling, never mind find the words to describe them to an anothe person

People often find that when their voice their experiences, feelings, and worries, and confide in a professional who can offer support and help them make sense of these, they feel heard, understood, and often a little lighter from sharing the weight of these. It is important that in counselling, a therapist is flexible to allow space for this, without expecting the client to always be able to articulate these in a way that makes sense to us, especially if it’s something that doesn’t even make sense to them

I offer a professional, safe, and confidential service for all age groups that tailors the Counselling’s to the client’s needs. Adult counselling often involves taking therapy, helping the client make sense of their situation, offering perspective and helping them make connections between their past and current experiences, and often helping them understand their inner self a bit better. This can sometimes involve using CBT, psychodynamic therapy, art therapy or other creative therapies.

Child and adolescent counselling can sometimes include talking therapy, with a focus on using play, art, drama, music, or stories therapeutically as well to help the client find a way to tell and make sense of their story, thoughts, feelings and experiences that is comfortable for them.

Please get in touch if you have any questions, or to book an assessment.
