About me

My counselling Service

I have worked with a range of issues with individuals and couples:

  • Self-harm
  • Young peoples issues
  • Anxiety
  • Bullying
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Low self esteem
  • Family matters
  • Relationships
  • Addiction
  • Bereavement
  • Forced separation from children
  • Carers
  • Disability and illness

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor, which basically means that I am client lead.  I provide the time and space (face-to-face or through Skype) for you to off-load, discuss and explore your thoughts, feelings or situations.

I believe that we can work out problems and anxieties, no matter how ‘stuck’ we can feel, just through the simple act of being listened to without judgement.  Counselling is a relationship where we can work together to acknowledge the issues that you wish to understand and resolve.

I have many years’ experience working in Youth Service, Homeless and Resettlement Programmes and working overseas with Non-Governmental Organisations prior to working as a Counsellor. I have experienced the life changes and relationship challenges that illness, disability and caring can bring.  I have also worked professionally for many years with those affected by addictions, low self-esteem and destructive behaviour.

I also like helping with couples and families with communication issues and misunderstandings between each other.  Mediation can enhance empathy and self-worth through learning how to rationalise and interpret our own and others’ emotions, words and actions.
