I work non-judgmentally with warmth, empathy and understanding and have a calm, gentle, caring approach.

My work is focused upon helping you to find your way to feeling and coping better, whatever the difficulties that are affecting the quality of your life.

I work with many areas of counselling including: Addictions, Anger Management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression,Domestic Violence, Eating Disorders, Emotional Abuse, Infertility, Loneliness, Low Self Confidence, Low Self Esteem, Miscarriage, Menopause, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Attacks, Phobias, Postnatal Depression, Physical Abuse, Pregnancy and Birth, Relationship problems, Redundancy, Self Harm, Sexual Abuse/ Assault, Sexuality, Stress, Suicidal Feelings, Trauma and Work related stress.

I understand that making the decision to see a Counsellor is often a difficult one. If you are considering therapy and have questions I am very willing to talk, free of charge, on the telephone.
