About me

Relationships are at the cornerstone of our lives and if they are not working this is likely to cause you unhappiness or distress. I offer counselling to couples and single people who are having problems and want better relationships.

All couples have ups and downs often caused by the many stresses and strains of modern life. Sometimes this results in arguments and couples growing apart. I will help you get your relationship back on track by providing a safe place to talk together, see what is causing your problems and look at ways to bring happiness and fulfilment back into your lives.

If you are single you may be having difficulty finding a special love relationship. Perhaps different issues are getting in the way such as low self-esteem, anxiety, commitment problems or childhood patterns. Or maybe it goes back to that old saying 'you need to love yourself first before you can love anyone else'. I will help you look at the relationship you have with yourself so you can develop the emotional stability to achieve your desires.

If you have come to the end of a relationship I can provide support to help you through your grief. By telling your story and making sense of what has happened, it may help you come to terms with your loss. You can then gradually move forward and look at new hopes for your future.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I can use the most appropriate counselling models to suit the individual needs of my clients. My main approach is person-centred so be reassured that you will be offered empathy, respect, acceptance and confidentiality. I hope to put you at your ease and give you a place to talk over your thoughts and emotions without the fear of being judged or worrying that you are upsetting or hurting anyone. Often the simple act of sharing your thoughts and feelings helps you feel lighter and able to look at life from a fresh perspective. This is the first step towards positive change in your life.
