About

Sometimes life becomes overwhelming, things do not feel right. Are you feeling:- anxious, distressed, judged, struggling with low self-esteem or self-confidence, overwhelmed, bewildered, or frightened? Talking to a qualified counsellor can really help, it can be tough asking for support and it is important to find someone you can feel comfortable with. Together we will work to find the solutions to help you cope and move forward with whatever difficulties you are facing. We will work at your own pace and help you find the inner strength you need to move forward. Your journey from your darkness back into your light.
As a trained integrative counsellor I practice a blend of counselling theories and techniques, these are adapted especially for you, you are a unique person. My specialties: Anxiety, low self-esteem, bullying, family issues, disabilities, pain, long-term illness and poor health, aging, suicidal thoughts, disordered eating, eating disorders, and depression.
I offer a safe environment where you can talk about anything confidentially, both from your past, your present and where you see yourself in the future. I believe the connection between us is fundamental to our relationship, therefore I offer a free session for you to decide whether I am right for you. Sessions are one hour usually on the same day each week.
