I have been practicing as a counsellor for 20 years and, through my work, I have been privileged to meet many beautiful and unique human beings.

I believe within counselling, a meaningful and trusting relationship with another human being is a vital part of the therapy, and that it is this relationship with another that enables us to understand and accept ourselves and to heal and grow.

I feel I have the qualities of self-awareness, genuineness or realness, empathy and an acceptance of others; all of which I consider to be vital in order to develop a therapeutic relationship with someone who is looking for help, with whatever it is that has led them to seek counselling.

As a counsellor I view myself as a fellow traveller, sharing a part of the client’s journey through life, for as long as they want me alongside them. I always feel both humbled and honoured when someone puts their trust in me and invites me to walk alongside them for a while and to share with me with their unique story.

As a counsellor, I have extensive experience of working with both individuals and couples. I have worked with a wide variety of issues including, anxiety, depression, family and relationship issues, stress, work related issues, trauma and bereavement. I also have experience of working with clients on the autistic spectrum.

I offer both face-to-face and online counselling, depending on availability. Although counselling has traditionally been face-to-face, since the start of the pandemic I have found that online sessions can be a very effective form of counselling. Many clients have found this a good way to access counselling, and it can provide more flexibility and convenience, including being able to be in their own space.
