As a counsellor, supervisor and trainer with over 20 years of experience I have been privileged to have worked with many courageous people from all walks of life, cultures and backgrounds. I have worked with adults, children, young people and couples who have faced difficulties in their lives and with their relationships. With the help of counselling they have been able to explore what’s troubling them, discover where their beliefs have come from, gain more control and a better understanding of themselves. This has then enabled the possibility of change from often repeating patterns of the past.

I offer an environment that is supportive, warm, confidential and free from judgement. I create a space in which you will be able to explore areas of your life that you may wish to understand, improve on or make changes to. Whether the difficulties are current or unresolved from the past, together we will work at your pace to make life better. I work in an integrative way which means I draw on a number of theories to help you make sense of things.
