About me

Someone to support you with the challenges and difficulties that life may be throwing at you.

Someone to fully hear you, to explore and make sense of your thoughts and feelings.

Someone to be side by side with you on your journey, to help you reconnect.

My role as a counsellor is to get to know you and to help you explore and understand your responses to yourself and others and why you may feel a certain way. The relationship between us is one built on trust and respect.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental, warm and confidential space, where you can talk about challenging issues and current struggles and feelings. I am a member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework  I offer one to one sessions during the week to adults.

Counselling can help you to manage life changes, anxiety, depression, relationships, anger, stress and so much more.
