I am a fully qualified professional counsellor who works with adults, young people and children. The type of therapy I offer is particularly suited to those who are drawn to exploring their thoughts and feelings and want to gain understanding and acceptance. It is particularly helpful for people who experience feelings of being overwhelmed and not coping, depression, anxiety and generally any issues that impact self-esteem. If you feel like you are disconnected from who you want to be then counselling can really help.

All the clients I work with have unique experiences, challenges, relationships and lives. Some people come to me knowing exactly what they want to work through or change and others may feel confused and may not fully understand why they feel the way they do. Whatever has brought you to this point be assured that you will get a friendly welcome in a professional and relaxing environment and I will be someone who will be there to help support you through this time.

Together we use the sessions at your pace to work through things, you will get the time and space you need. I wont make judgements about you and your life, I will listen to what you have to say and together we will work through the things that are important.

I have years of experience working with different complexities of problems, I work with people on a long or short term basis.  Typically people come to me because they are feeling unable to cope without something changing in their lives, anxiety, stress, depression, panic attacks, abuse, self destructive behaviours, problem gambling, health anxiety, carers, relationship issues, work/life balance, trust issues, those affected by illness, feeling overwhelmed, unfulfilled, lost, sad, bereaved, family issues, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce amongst many more etc.
