About

I am a down-to-earth, empathic counsellor, offering you a space to feel heard, understood and supported. I can help you make sense of your life and how you feel - exploring how your past impacts your present, how to cope today and how you might move toward a better future whatever that might mean for you. I will take your feelings and issues seriously but I will also laugh and swear with you if that feels right for us! There can be humour and lightness in therapy, as well as challenging emotions and depth. I will be there with you through whatever comes up, with acceptance and compassion.
I have helped past clients: reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, increase self-esteem and self-care, improve communication, and generally feel better and more grounded in themselves - with more choices and hope. I have understanding of disability and chronic illness through work & my own lived experience and am LGBTQ+ friendly.
Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like a free 30-minute Zoom consultation. I always endeavour to reply within 48 hours; please check your junk if you are waiting on a reply. Whether you meet with me or another counsellor, I wish you well on your therapy journey.
