I have lots of experience with anxiety, depression and addictions. I also have experience helping those who are neurodiverse such as High Functioning Autism (also known as Asperger’s), ADD and ADHD. I can also help those who care for individuals who have those traits.

Have you ever felt misunderstood, not listened to or simply feel that people do not get you - well I am here for you. I am not here to judge you or make assumptions or think I know best, I am here to help you feel safe so that you have the space to talk.

I currently volunteer as a counsellor for one day a week at Change Grow Live Reading who help people with drug and alcohol addictions. I am DBS checked.
