I have experience in working with people from all walks of life, helping them overcome some of the challenges they have been facing at different stages in life. Our life experiences, relationships, emotional challenges and stress can impact our wellbeing, mental health and self image, leaving us feeling stuck, anxious about the future, depressed or not good enough to deserve better in life. I believe that we hold the answers and that with support we can retrace our inner resources and overcome the fears which hold us back, empowering us to bring the changes we desire in our lives.
I aim to offer you a supportive and empathetic environment where you feel safe, held and confident to explore any challenges you experience. Through an integrative counselling practice, I draw on different counselling modalities to help you process distressing events, painful feelings and identify behaviour or thought patterns which may cause you distress.
Sitting with you side by side and working through exploring any difficulties you may confront with, I will support you find healthier ways of managing relationships, stress and anxiety, increasing your self-confidence so that you are empowered and ready to handle every day issues with more ease.

Next steps: call or send an email if you are ready to start, to set an initial consultation.
