Hello and welcome to my website.
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by the confusion and stresses and strains of life, emotions and relationships?
Maybe you need a friendly ear as a sounding board or would like to explore something in greater depth?
As a fully-qualified, professional counsellor with a warm and empathetic nature, I offer a well-held and confidential space in which we can explore the issues that are concerning you.
I offer a free, half-hour introductory session (with no obligation to continue), to give you a chance to speak about the issues that are concerning you and to see if I could be the right counsellor for you, somebody you feel is safe and competent and comfortable to work with.
My work is rooted in compassionate, attentive listening, but having trained as a humanistic, integrative counsellor, it incorporates elements of CBT, Gestalt, Inner Child Work and the optional use of clay, drawing/painting and Sand Tray as a springboard for self-enquiry and growth. Also, some clients find using simple Mindfulness exercises can be very beneficial.
In an environment where you feel heard, valued and respected, my intention is to support you in seeking your own solutions by exploring:
- the present, to get a sense of what is happening for you consciously, with the option of
- also working with more hidden issues to examine patterns and unresolved, past conflicts.
But whatever pace or depth you feel comfortable with, it is always you in the driving seat.

Issues I can work with:
I have extensive experience of working with anxiety, depression, panic attacks and relationship issues, but other concerns I can work with include :
• body image problems,
• eating disorders,
• abuse (sexual, emotional, physical),
• long-term health issues,
• poor self-esteem,
• behavioural problems,
• unresolved childhood issues,
• substance misuse,
• past criminal behaviours,
• loss and grief ( concerning for example: a loved one, one's identity or sense of self or past selves, opportunities or situations).
However, we work with whatever you bring to each session and you will always be treated with compassion and sensitivity, creating a safe environment in which to explore true thoughts and feelings.
