About me and my therapy practice

People come and see me for many reasons. Sometimes it’s general, you just feel like life is kicking you in the teeth and it’s all too much. Sometimes it’s because life is lacking in focus. Or it may be that you have no one who ‘gets you’ or who will really listen to you.

Alternatively, there may be a specific reason, for example, a death or the breakdown of a relationship. It could be a work, school or  friendship related issue; such as being bullied, excluded or unfairly treated. Perhaps you may suffer from anxiety or depression. Or maybe you are experiencing feelings of anger, frustration, guilt or shame.

Whatever the reason don't struggle alone and if you feel you are unable to share with friends or family, talk to me and together we can work it out. I am here to listen and help you explore and make sense of things in a private, supportive and non-judgemental environment. My aim is then to help you move forward in a way that is right for you.

Together, we will meet in a private, comfortable room. Parking is available.

My Background

After spending over 20 years in the corporate world, I decided to get off the hamster wheel, re-train and began mentoring young people and providing help to families in crisis. Subsequently I have focused on youth mentoring and counselling to both adults and young people.

I hold both a Foundation Degree and BACP accredited Diploma in Counselling and am a fully registered member of the BACP. I am also DBS-checked (Disclosure and Barring Service) and fully insured.

I have a varied experience including working with adults and young people in both private practice and within a counselling organisation, school and charity.
