About me and my therapy practice

Hope and Support when you need it the most- no matter what-- Are you struggling to cope with difficult feelings, thoughts or behaviours? Looking for ways to manage difficult past or present life events or relationships or maybe you just want to understand yourself better?

As your counsellor, I will offer you a safe, confidential, and comfortable space to explore your difficulties without judging you or telling you what to do. There will be no distractions; an opportunity to be fully heard and valued. Whether you want to explore through talking or other creative means like art work, movement or acting out, it is your choice, whatever works for you!

I have experience of working with individuals over the ages of 11, and with the range of issues from depression and anxiety to severe mental health problems. I came to counselling as a client and so understand the feeling of hopelessness and despair...I have learnt that there is always hope and things do change!!

If you think I may be the right counsellor for you, please give me a call, and we can talk through what you would like help with.
