I offer Counselling and EMDR for individuals, both on a short or long term basis. I endeavour to work with individuals or in a way that meets their current needs. My therapeutic approach is humanistic integrative, which reflects my belief that given the right conditions each person has the potential to grow and move forward in their own way. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which individuals can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings and gain personal awareness.

Life can sometimes be a terrible struggle. We may put on a brave face and push down how we're truly feeling. Yet when we don't have an outlet for those feelings we've internalised our confusion and isolation can escalate. We may be experiencing stress, anxiety or depression, which can hinder our ability to function as we'd like to. It takes strength and courage to acknowledge these issues, and even more to ask for help...and there IS help! By seeking assistance you're already taking a significant step towards feeling better about yourself. I'm convinced that you're now using your innate ability to overcome what you're going through.

Counselling and Psychotherapy is both my career and my passion. It is a privilege to work with people taking what can be the bravest of decisions to come to therapy. I am there to support you in finding clarity and understanding, so that you may find ways to lead life more on your terms. Therapy will not make things disappear but it can and does create opportunities to look at matters differently, so that distress can be managed, if not overcome. You will be assured I have over 10-years experience of working with adults, young people and children.

Do you ever catch yourself wondering what a worry-free life might feel like? Almost without thinking, we visit our doctors to cure a troubling cough, or to the hospital to fix a broken bone.   Yet many of us believe that somehow, it’s our duty to endure cluttered, often mis-understood thoughts and feelings on our own, in silence. As a qualified counsellor, I believe that we can all benefit from loving emotional support that accepts us as the people we are.  That’s why I provide a safe, confidential, and judgement-free space for you to share whatever happens to be on your mind.

However, like any journey we embark on in life, embracing uncertainty can set us on a rewarding journey of self-discovery. Through the use of various therapeutic approaches and collaborative progress tools, people who meet with me develop life-changing strategies to help them cope with life’s various obstacles. My therapy sessions are designed to help you make sense of your personal issues and provide you with effective tools to live a fulfilling life.

Counselling is the opportunity for you to openly talk about your worries, thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential environment allowing you to gain your own understanding of your process. My therapeutic approach is Person-Centred, which is non-directive and led by the client, exploring own thoughts, emotions and behaviours with no judgement ending with you gaining more effective coping strategies and a deeper understanding of yourself. My approach will not be to advise, but to encourage you to talk and explore at depth. I truly believe you are the expert in your own life and I will support you in this journey of discovery.

If you’re struggling and feel you are in need of support then it’s knowing who you can turn to for support and seek the answers you’re after. Why not consider counselling, it can help with issues from anxiety to self-harm. Counselling can offer you an opportunity to understand why you may feel that way, help your mindset change and allow you to grow and flourish as best as you want to. Children and young people want to feel as "normal" as possible and to not feel like the outsider who may be struggling. The end result is for them to own who they are. And this is possible if you want to give counselling a go for you or your child.
