About me

We’ve all heard the saying ‘’ life’s ups and downs’’. It’s what makes us human but  we can feel overwhelmed by these situations. This can have a negative impact on our lives and relationships. Sometimes leaving us in a cycle of anxiety that feels like its taken over our world. Although the way society views mental health is changing, it can still be hard to share the thoughts that go round our head with those near to us.

Counselling offers the chance to share the concerns that have left you feeling stuck and confused about what to do next. I  offer a safe and confidential space to talk and explore what is happening to you and how that might be influenced by the way we relate to others . By nature we need people around us but when being with others is difficult and in some cases harmful, we can lose confidence and self esteem. My clients say that when they have started to value themselves, they are able to make life changes.

It’s important to choose a therapist you feel comfortable working with, so I offer an initial 30 minute session to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your reasons for coming, the outcomes you’re hoping to achieve and any questions you have. The sessions are your time, that could be around a particular goal you have or to look deeper into your situation. The choice is always yours.


At the moment I am studying for Level 6 in Clinical Supervision and currently able to offer lower cost supervision during my training. Please call or email for further details.
