Counselling Services

Thank you for considering me as a counsellor. I believe that the our relationship is key to support change and requires mutual trust, openness and honesty. To establish this trust, it is important that you are happy to work with me.  Please feel free to call me on 07859 414 376 or use the contact form to set up an appointment or ask additional questions.


I provide a safe, confidential environment in which to explore your difficulties through a collaborative approach at your pace.


Therapy is a space for you to be yourself, giving you time to talk, cry and time to think and reflect. Once a safe relationship has developed between us based on empathy and trust you will be able to consider what actions need to be taken to make change.


Speaking to a trained counsellor can help you to become clearer about issues, find answers, discover ways to cope with feelings and manage behaviours.
