About me

Are you going through a difficult time following abusive or difficult relationships? Are you struggling with stress, bereavement, childhood issues, anxiety, low self-esteem or confidence? Are you feeling alone, isolated, or struggling to find someone who will listen without judgement, advice or criticism? I offer a confidential, person-centred/ integrative approach. You will be respected as an individual, have your distress and discomfort accepted, and will gain insight and understanding of your struggles, ultimately feeling empowered to move into a more fulfilling life.

I am a fully qualified, experienced person-centred counsellor offering confidential counselling in a private, supportive and comfortable environment. I value individuality, honesty, integrity, meaningful relationships and empowering people to find their own path. I sit with people in distress, chaos, confusion, and sadness and give them the safety and space they need to explore past or present difficulties and help them to make the changes they wish to make.

In person centred counselling we build a positive, accepting, constructive and empowering relationship where we work together to gain understanding and clarity about the issues you are struggling with. With time and clarity you will be able to move forwards with positive relationships, greater confidence and increased self-esteem. Counselling also helps people to be more assertive, be able to listen to and value themselves, and gain clarity and skills to deal with difficult situations.

I use a person centred/integrative approach which is helpful for anyone experiencing emotional difficulties. I specialise in

  • depression
  • domestic violence
  • abuse
  • stress
  • bereavement
  • childhood issues
  • low self-esteem and confidence.
  • anxiety

I offers short term and long term counselling, meeting your individual needs and preferences. The first session will be spent exploring your concerns and getting to know each other. You will be in control of the sessions, choosing the pace and what you wish to explore. Some people come for a few sessions, others come for months/years.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss counselling or ask any questions. 07975684147.
