I offer a holistic approach to Counselling, ensuring your needs as an individual are met. Essentially you are an expert in yourself, are completely unique and have the potential to feel fulfilled and happy.
I qualified as a nurse in 1991 and have worked in many health care settings including palliative care and addiction services as well as GP practices. Therefore I have a good understanding of how physical and mental health issues impact peoples lives.
I offer a safe, comfortable space for us to work together and address issues such as bereavement, addiction, depression, anxiety, relationship issues etc.
I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Wednesday and Thursday 10-7pm
I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation prior to any commitment to face to face appointments. This gives us the opportunity to discuss how we can work together to help with your issues and for you to decide if I am the right therapist for you.
