I can support you in your grief, especially if you are finding that you have no peace or meaning in your life. I am experienced in working with grief and know how someone's life can be left shattered after a loss.

My journey to become a Counsellor was driven by my own life's experiences and when I needed to explore my feelings, I was allowed to do this without fear of judgement. I was listened to. I can be this person for you.

Having undertaken much training in the field of counselling, I found my niche to be in counselling the bereaved and so trained further in this area. I also have a special interest in Type 1 Diabetes; its implications and associated mental health.

Counselling Cottage is set in tranquil surroundings and offers you a comfortable space where you can relax and explore your feelings. If you call me and I am not immediately available, I appreciate that this could leave you feeling a little anxious, but please leave your number as I promise to return your call promptly.
