I have worked with a wide range of client issues including anxiety, low confidence and self-esteem, trauma, feelings of depression, self-harm, bereavement and loss, physical and learning disabilities, sexual and gender identity, suicidal intentions and general feelings of low mood and loneliness. As well as allowing clients to talk through their feelings, I have also employed creative techniques including free drawing, letter writing, poetry and songwriting, play scriptwriting and sand tray work. I am recently trained in EFT Tapping and EMDR, both of which I find are powerful methods of working.

I specialise with the LGBT+ community, including their family and friends. I can offer a non-judgemental, gentle, accepting confidential space for you to share your issues and concerns, knowing you will not be rejected or discriminated against. I have lived experience of transgender identities, as my son is transgender. I have witnessed the high mental health conditions, suicidal ideation , including self-harm, and loss faced by LGBT+ individuals that I have counselled, along with the hurdles my son has encountered during his transition. I would like to walk with you along your pathway, and consider myself privileged to do so.

A former nurse and NHS counsellor, I have experience of working with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, abuse, suicidal thoughts, bereavement, long-term illness, and difficult life stages.
Are you struggling or going through a difficult time? Maybe you feel anxious or depressed, or you want to talk about a difficult aspect of your life. I am a friendly online and telephone counsellor. I work in a conversational manner, and I listen with respect. Counselling can help you to process emotions and experiences, feel calmer, build self-esteem, strengthen personal boundaries, understand and improve relationships with those around you, and help you think through problems. I help my clients to develop self-awareness and self-worth. Send me a short message-many people take the first step towards counselling this way!

I've worked particularly with anxiety, depression, relationships, bereavement, trauma, suicide , and disordered eating.
Experiences in life can sometimes prevent us from living our life as fully as we would like to or in the way we wish. Anxiety, depression and other issues can leave us feeling confused and stuck, unable to move forward and take charge of our lives. ​ I offer one-one counselling in a private, confidential and safe space. This can help you explore and understand your experiences, your feelings and your thoughts. It can help you consider and deal with the dilemmas and decisions you face and it can help you understand your patterns, to see new perspectives for your future and to regain the confidence to make the changes you want to. ​

Are you feeling so overwhelmed that you feel out of your depth? Or experiencing a sense of loss, unable to cope? Fear is our worst enemy, and we will try and find a way of taking back control. If you feel you are struggling there is a strength in reaching out for support. Counselling helps you to gain a better understanding of self through the therapeutic process, and I believe we are all unique and have the potential to change, therefore develop a belief in your ability to cope. You will begin to make sense of the past and begin to recognise your true self.

Counselling is a place to explore our thoughts, feelings and emotions. A chance to explore our life direction. An opportunity to pause and understand where we are and what is happening in our lives right now. It is a place to explore past and present events or traumas and a space to speak out loud thoughts that had previously been unspeakable.

I offer a safe & confidential place for you to come and talk about anything in your life that may be causing you distress or confusion. I believe that counselling can benefit anyone; it can really help to talk to someone who is objective & professional. Often people come to counselling with no clear idea of what they want or how they feel. There is no expectation from me with regards to the issues you bring; counselling is your space & it is common for people to feel confused or unsure. My aim is to support you through the process & help you to better understand yourself & your struggles, so that you can move forward with your life.

My core aim as a counsellor is to provide a warm and consistent space for you to feel heard and understood. We have many parts within us that need a listening ear, and open heart. When we find acceptance and compassion for ourselves, things can start to change in our lives. I offer kindness, non-judgement, and curiosity so that you can begin to feel resilient and self-loving. Each of us is born with inherent wisdom and we are our own best expert. But you may have lost trust along the way. I strive to offer you a nurturing, therapeutic relationship that encourages a sense of safety to trust.

We all have times in our lives when we feel overwhelmed. This can impact on our relationships and other areas of our lives. These feelings may make it difficult to reach our potential or know how to progress. Counselling offers a reflective space which is helpful for building self-awareness in order to work through past or present life challenges. I employ a flexible approach which is informed by your needs. I draw on different theories to create a style of therapy which is individually tailored to you, and your aims. I hope to provide an open and accepting, and genuinely safe and non-judgemental space to reflect without fear.
