How can I help?

I have a relaxed yet professional counselling approach and the focus is on you, and what is in your best interest. I am not here to make any judgements, I am here to be a supporting passenger on your own journey. I give you the time and space to explore what is on your mind and work towards any goals you might have. Its ok to be going through a tough time, and its ok to ask for help.

Our work together will be strictly confidential, giving you the confidence to know you can share what’s on your mind and that your thoughts will stay with me. I am easy to talk to and can help you with whatever it is you might be going through.
