About me

I am a qualified counsellor with over 15 years experience, specialising in working with couples and individuals, families and children, young people and teenagers.

I offer a confidential counselling service in South Leicestershire. I provide a safe place to explore what’s troubling you as an individual (adult or teenager), couple or family. I can support you to work through difficult life events and challenges which are impacting on your emotional well-being such as couple or family relationship problems, divorce & separation, argument and conflict, stress & anxiety, depression and bereavement.

Sometimes life can be challenging and you can feel under pressure. I give you the opportunity to talk in confidence about any difficulties you are facing. I will not take sides.

At times everyone feels worried or has problems that may be hard to talk about with the people close to you. You may worry about whether they will understand, whether you can trust them, whether they will blame you, or ignore your feelings. Together, we can explore your worries and problems and find ways to move forward that are right for you.

I will listen and support you without telling you what to do or judging you. I will ensure each member or of the couple or family has the opportunity to be heard. As everyone’s needs are different it is difficult to know whether the work will be short term or long term but that is something we can discuss and agree.
