About me

I provide a warm, safe, supportive, non-judgemental space; a relationship for healing, finding meaning in life and developing new insight.  As a person-centred and psychodynamic counsellor I believe that you have the resources within yourself to make positive changes in your life.  We often underestimate how events or relationships have affected us.  The first step to empowering you is to help you to recoginise your own traumas and to offer yourself compassion and support.

Before training to become a counsellor I worked in Social Care for 12 years, sopporting people with mental health issues, learning disabilities and people on the autism spectrum. This work showed me the importance of helping someone to feel valued, appreciated and understood. It gave me many experiences of connecting with different people in different ways.

Choosing the right therapist is important. Call or email to arrange an initial session. We can talk about where your life is right now and what you want to get out of counselling. If it feels right for you we can decide how we will work together.
