About me

I am a fully qualified, experienced Counsellor.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am trained in and use a variety of techniques to best suit individual clients. I can help with a wide range of issues. I offer mainly Person-centred therapy. I work non-judgmentally with warmth, empathy and understanding and have a calm, gentle, caring approach.

People come to see me when they are facing difficulties in their life and troubles from their past.
Sometimes they don't really know what is troubling them, they just know that something is not quite right. Everyone is different, so I work with each person's specific need.

I work with many areas of counselling including:

  • Domestic Violence
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Physical Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Neglect
  • Psychological Abuse
  • Financial Abuse
  • Discriminatory abuse
  • Organisational or institutional abuse
  • Modern slavery
  • Self-neglect
  • and more recently trauma recall.

I have integrity and am down to earth, I have a calm style of working. I believe in making the counselling experience as comfortable as possible, even when exploring difficult issues and yes, dare I say, sometimes I can make the experience enjoyable.

I look forward to welcoming you. So please contact me today. I am also on facebook meaning you can book me on there too!
