About me

COVID-19: The impact of this virus is far reaching and wide spread. In light of circumstance I am offering telephone sessions only for the time being. Please see fee below.  Updated: 22/3/20

Stress, anxiety, depression is no longer such a taboo subject, yet we often tell ourselves, I can cope with this myself or maybe nobody will want to listen because nobody has time, or how about I’m too ashamed and I blame myself so I will cope with this by myself...... Well I am here to offer you the space to speak the unspoken and explore worrying thoughts together.

The problem might be a recent incident that has left you feeling unsettled or a long-standing concern deep-rooted in unresolved trauma that has affected you e.g. sleepless nights, social anxiety, fear, a relationship issue, performance at work, mood, self-worth.

One way or another you are not alone. When accessing counselling with me you will be at the heart of my practice with the belief that a good therapeutic relationship based on warmth, empathy and readiness is our best starting point. I am passionate about counselling and driven to help you achieve your goals. My success rate in doing so fuels my motivation.

I have been a qualified counsellor from since 2006. I am down to earth, equality driven counsellor with experience of working with clients from diverse backgrounds. Reasons for attending sessions with me can be varied or a singular targeted concern. When you are ready to take the first step get in touch for a free telephone consultation.

Further information

What to expect?

Once you have called or emailed and you are ready for counselling with me, we will mutually agree a suitable time for sessions to begin.

The first face to face session is a 'getting to know you'  with an assessment to explore your needs, history and preferences etc plus questions that you might have about counselling and my practice.

I like to review progress every 6 weeks to ensure you are getting the best out of the sessions. We will review targeted concerns, discuss number of future sessions, endings and what to include/exclude for future sessions.
