About me


If we experience times when difficulties can feel too much to face, personal counselling can offer opportunities to explore our issues in a supportive, confidential space. Together, we can focus on you and help you to explore whatever is bothering you. Sharing our feelings, being heard and accepted can enable a deeper understanding of ourselves. Over time, the process can help to release our innate potential and discover future possibilities.


You can contact me to arrange an initial free of charge 15 minute telephone call to see whether we would like to work together. We can discuss your counselling options and work out which best meets your needs. this may be face to face or distance counselling. We can talk about what has led you to consider counselling and I can answer any questions you may have about how I work. I have a dedicated private room in my home. If you are unable to travel to appointments due to health issues I do offer home/residential home visits locally.
