About me

I am a qualified, professional counsellor with experience of working through a wide variety of issues with clients such as depression, anxiety, trauma, self-harm, spiritual crisis and bereavement. Within my practice, I provide a safe and confidential space where together we can address the life circumstances that are causing you distress.

People come to counselling for a variety of reasons; it may be you are struggling to cope with recent change or there are long-standing concerns which you feel you would benefit from addressing with someone who is able to listen to you, offer acceptance and empathise.

As an integrative counsellor, I can tailor sessions to your particular needs, whether that be looking at how events in the past can influence our present, working on current experience or addressing unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours.

Clients can attend for a short number of sessions or longer term counselling, we will work together to decide the best way forward for you.

I offer our first meeting at a reduced rate of £25 for one hour, thereafter my fee is £40 per session (one hour).
