Counselling is where you can tell your story in the presence of someone who is trained in the Art of Listening. It is grounded in confidentiality, respect, equality and trust.

I have a deep understanding of the healing power of you telling your story, of being heard and seen, of knowing that what you say matters. In these unsettling times I consider it to be even more important to understand our anxieties and have opportunities to express them.

I offer short and long term counselling for adults in a safe and reflective space, where you don’t have to struggle with your difficulties on your own. Together we can explore what is going on for you. I can help you gain awareness, discover choices, heal and learn how to empower yourself. I facilitate this process as I listen and observe empathically, describe and reflect with care.

I offer support through face to face and online counselling.

I use methods from different therapeutic disciplines to suit your specific needs. I especially use methods which encourage whole brain thinking and experiencing with the body, rather than over-relying on logic.

There is no charge for an initial phone conversation. Subsequent sessions are charged at a rate of £55 per 50 minute session.

  • Stress: I feel overloaded.
  • Depression: I have no energy. I lost motivation. The black dog that sits on me.
  • Trauma: I do not feel safe anymore.
  • Loss and Grief: Someone or something I had is gone. It has left an emptiness that hurts.
  • Stuck-ness: I am trying hard to find a solution, but I keep going around in circles.
  • ConfusionMy head is in a muddle. I need time and space to think.
  • Overwhelm: I cannot cope.
