About Me

Whatever you are going through and however it is making you feel, I can offer you a safe space to be heard and understood.

I help with; anxiety, depression, feeling sad, stress, loneliness, bereavement, alcohol problems and many more personal challenges.

One important thing these personal challenges have in common?

Counselling

They all can improve with counselling support.

Counselling is a form of therapy which has been proven to help people make positive changes to their lives. Ultimately helping you to feel and cope better when being up against these personal challenges. I can help you understand and explore what may be causing them.

Talk at your own pace

You may be experiencing feelings, thoughts or behaviours you no longer want, as well as going through a sad or upsetting time or hope to break free from a troubling situation.

I can help you to talk at your own pace in a safe environment about your thoughts and feelings rather than bottling them up.

There is so much to gain by working together in counselling helping you move forward in the direction you choose.

Gain a better understanding of yourself

We can explore problems or experiences that you may be finding painful, troubling or embarrassing. I can help you make sense of what is troubling you.

As we go through the process of therapy together you may gain a better understanding of yourself and of those around you.

My counselling approach

My counselling approach is pluralistic. I believe that each person is unique and because of this, you may need different things from therapy.

In the process of therapy, there are many ways to make a difference. I am trained to work with a range of different therapeutic approaches and draw on them to tailor therapy to your specific needs and wants.

I work with adults and young people from 16 years.

If you feel you are ready for counselling at this moment in time and that I may be the counsellor you would like to work with then you are welcome to email, text or call me.
