About me

There are times in our lives when it is difficult to cope. We may be dealing with a specific life changing event, struggling in our relationships, or experiencing a challenging work environment. When we are overwhelmed or feeling out of control, our perspective and our sense of self can fall out of balance. Talking to a counsellor, and working through difficult feelings, is a positive step towards rebalancing our lives, and finding our true perspective again.

I have 10 years experience of working therapeutically with clients.  As a specialist trauma counsellor I supported clients who were dealing with anxiety, addiction, depression, domestic violence, panic attacks, PTSD, sexual abuse, sexuality, social anxiety.

I also work with autism, and other aspects of neurodiversity. Individuals on the autistic spectrum may have feelings of isolation due to a struggle with social understanding or sensory overload, they may have also experienced some form of exclusion in their lives, perhaps at work or school.  This can lead to depression, anxiety and sometimes self harm. I therefore offer counselling to any one dealing with this in their lives.
