About me

Are you struggling with a relationship?

Are you finding it difficult to maintain boundaries and feel that you can't say No?

Is there conflict within your relationship; whether that is with your partner, parent, child or friend?

I provide confidential counselling, in a tranquil and safe environment. Counselling with me will be your opportunity to explore the difficulties that you are experiencing.

Sometimes, it's helpful to talk out our fears, worries and anxiety with someone that we know can help us move through the issues.

Everyday, I help people like you to better understand issues within relationships, work, parenting, families and more; the conflicts, emotions and confused thoughts that can make us feel stuck.

I know from experience how difficult life can be, and I know just how much effort it takes sometimes to keep on trying!

I will help you to empower yourself to make wise, clear decisions and to give you strategies to deal with your problems.  I offer warmth and empathic understanding so that you can feel secure enough to share your problems.

Counselling is your self-care time. Its not always about 'mental health' issues! It is your time to off load and re-asses your life. Sometimes we just need that hour each week where we can talk openly, without fear of judgement, about things that are bothering us. I also offer relaxation and mindfulness skills too.

I ensure that my clients are given resources to take away with them;  resources and skills that will help them to grow and change.
