About me

I offer counselling to children, young people, and also adults who are experiencing difficulties with feeling anxious, angry, stressed or depressed. It may be that there have been big changes at home, school or college or you or a family member are experiencing difficulties with relationships with those who are important to you. Adjusting to life at home with a new baby may be much harder that you hoped. I can help.

Counselling for children and young people.

Children and young people cannot always find the right words to clearly express their feelings, they may not understand why they feel the way they do or what is happening to them. Their distress can be shown through changes in their behaviour. They may become angry, upset, or quiet and withdrawn, they may be having problems with friendships and family relationships. Their work at school or college can be affected as they are preoccupied with their difficulties, their concentration becomes affected and their sleep disrupted. I can help.

Support for new parents.

Welcoming a new baby into the family can be both an exciting and exhausting time. Your thoughts about what it may be like before your baby arrives may be quite different from how things are after the birth. It may seem as if other parents you know are coping much better than you are. You may find yourself feeling anxious or depressed, perhaps the birth did not happen in the way you hoped. All of this can affect how you feel about your baby, you may not feel able to speak about this to anyone as you are worried about what they may think. I can meet with you and your baby to explore your worries without judgment. I can help.

Counselling and Therapy for Adults.

When we are struggling we may find that we no longer want to spend time with the people who are important to us, our working life may become affected. We may start to look for different coping mechanisms to help us with this difficult time.These can help us feel better in the short term but can lead to ongoing problems in the future. Asking for help from family and friends may not always seem to be the right thing to do. We may feel embarrassed about speaking out or do not want to worry the people who are important to us. I can help
