About me

Got winter blues?  Are you feeling low or sad and need some one to talk to?  If you are feeling overwhelmed or anxious, lonely or depressed and feel like you have no-one to turn to, I can help. Being listened to in a place that offers safety, warmth and compassion, free from judgement, can help you to feel really heard and accepted for who you are.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. I am registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy. I will offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to talk through your worries and difficulties. I provide a professional and ethical service and adhere to my professional body's Ethical Framework.

My theoretical approach to counselling is integrative, meaning I work in a person-centred and psychodynamic way. I can help you explore unresolved childhood experiences and what is happening in your life in the here and now. I can help if you are experiencing difficlties in your life that you need to resolve and get your life back on track.  

I work with adults and adolescents who may be experiencing a wide range of issues, such as:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • relationship issues
  • family issues
  • unsresolved childhood experiences
  • abuse - physical, emotional or sexual
  • work related difficulties
  • self harm
  • suicidal thoughts and feelings.

I can help you to gain new insight and self awareness so that you can make changes in your life, enabling you to move forward.

I have 20 years' experience of working with young people within an educational setting using counselling skills and providing emotional support.

I am able to travel to you if you are unable to travel to me. Give me a call to discuss and we can make arrangements.

Fully insured.
