About me

If you've reached a point where you need some extra support from someone completely separate from your personal life, who is professional, understanding and approachable, then please do get in touch.

We all need a bit of extra support at certain times in our lives.  I will ensure you feel heard, understood and supported, so that you can have a happier and more positive future.

I am bound by my ethical guidelines as a member of the National Counselling Society, so all information given will be completely confidential.
