About me

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor who is passionate about working with individuals to help support them to live more fulfilled and healthier lifestyles. I feel confident that counselling can support individuals in becoming aware of their own feelings and behaviours to understand situations in allowing them to make the necessary decisions to change their lives.

I am authentic and comfortable working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and age groups. I have excellent empathic listening, verbal and non-verbal communication skills.

Taking an holistic approach to life, I realise that it can take a lot to make and sustain changes. Using meditation, mindfulness practices and exercise amongst other self-care techniques, can help you to stay motivated and focused.

I offer a person-centred approach in a safe setting where individuals can come and work through there issues or concerns, working together we can find a way. Recognising your own anxieties and stress can be difficult to share with others, having a personal and confidential space to explore those feelings are important.

I provide a safe and confidential space for individuals to talk allowing you to work through feelings that are impacting your everyday life. Recognising which are your problems and others problems to solve can be tricky sometimes. Working together at your pace we can find a way to make changes to improve these difficulties.

I work from a home-based counselling room which is both quiet and private, this is within a five-minute walk from public transport links and easily reachable

I do not publish my address on here but, once we have agreed a first appointment, I will give you all the information you need to get to me.

I offer face to face person centred therapy to adults on a long/short-term basis dealing with anxiety and depression.
