About

Are you struggling with trying to make sense of what you are going through right now? It can be a daunting thought, wanting to unscramble your feelings. I provide acceptance, a warm, welcoming and confidential environment. The therapy I use is Person Centred. This allows me to listen to you, so that you are heard. There is no judgment with whatever you bring to the counselling session. It would be a privilege to be by your side, on your journey, to then watch you fly, knowing that you have gone to places that you felt you were not brave enough to go.
I have a keen interest in Grief and Loss, which covers everything from bereavement, helping people with medical conditions such as auto immune diseases, or when a life event happens and it affects your well being. I also have an interest in spirituality. I work as a healing practitioner and meditation practitioner teacher.
The bravest word you can say is help. By reaching out it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign strength. I will be by your side throughout your journey, listening so that you are heard without any judgement. I have lived experience of bereavement and a long term medical condition. I am also a proud alley of the LGBTQ community.
