About me

Do you struggle to live in the moment? Overthink? Worry about what others think of you and your Choices? Do you want to care less and live more, find yourself and crack on with life?


We all go through some tough stuff at times and counselling is a great way of untangling problems or dealing with unwanted thoughts and feelings aswell as helping you learn about you. Counselling enables you to explore what is going on in your life right now and perhaps what has gone before to bring you to this point.


I offer an initial  telephone conversation to allow you to decide if you are happy for us to work together, as I believe finding the right therapist for you benefits you. We work together at your pace without judgement and in confidence* in our counselling space tailored for comfort and in depth conversation if that's what you need.

I am approachable, down to earth and a bit different. I'd like my clients to learn something new about themselves and hopefully obtain some tools and life skills to help clarify where they are at the moment and where they want to be. 

What can I help with?

  

- Anxiety               - Relationships

- Stress                  - Self-awareness

- PMT/PMDD        - Depression

- Self-esteem       - Negative thoughts 

- Confidence        - gambling problems 

Qualifications and Experience
