About me

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

Life can be so hard. We often feel overwhelmed by the challenges we face and find our own coping skills are not enough. Asking for help is nothing to be ashamed of. Counselling can help you put aside the brave face you wear for family and friends as it can be difficult to talk openly and honestly with them.

"Healing takes courage and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it" - Tori Amos

There are many reasons why people come to counselling. No problem is too big or too small, whether you are looking for individual counselling or help as a couple. Perhaps you have been struggling with something for a long time, or you might have experienced a recent upheaval in your life.

I understand that coming to counselling may seem daunting. Perhaps you could think of it as reaching out and taking the first step. There's no one giant leap to healing and well-being, but lots of little steps along the way. Counselling is an investment in yourself, a way of finding balance to a happier and healthier you. You're worth that!

It is very important that you feel comfortable and connected with a counsellor, so that a relationship based on honesty, openness and trust can be built. This will allow you to feel accepted without judgement. I offer a free 20 minute, no obligation telephone conversation, so that you can get a feel if you think we could work together.

I work with a range of emotional and psychological issues including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Low self-esteem and low confidence
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Family issues
  • Separation and divorce
  • Self harm
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Anger and panic
  • Transitions and life name a few

"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf" - Jon Kabat-Zinn

I work with individuals and couples from all walks of life, who are going through difficult times and would like to improve how they feel about themselves, improve their coping skills, find their voice and become empowered.

With couples work, it is the relationship that is the client. I work in the same neutral and empathic way, helping couples to improve their relationship with better understanding and honest communication, conflict resolution skills and the belief that if they are willing to change, the relationship can change too.

I am passionate about what I do. I love people - their uniqueness, their triumphs and failures, their diversity and dilemmas. I build therapeutic relationships based on trust and acceptance. No judgement. I am an experienced, down-to-earth and friendly counsellor. My aim is to help you feel comfortable and empowered, so that you can achieve what matters most to you in your life.

Let's talk. There's strength in asking for help.
