Welcome

Does life feel difficult or overwhelming?

 

When life is tough, do you tend to share, and people do not listen or make it about them? And then offer unsolicited advice?

 

You know you want help, but you don’t know where to start?

 

Does any of the above sound familiar? You may not know exactly what is wrong, or what brought you here. And that’s okay. That’s where I can help.

About Me

I am a person-centred counsellor who puts the client at the heart of what I do. The focus is always going to be on you, and your wants and needs. You can expect me to work hard to create an empathic, non-judgemental relationship and environment. I will hope to help you explore your feelings and make sense of your experiences, deepen your understanding of self, as we bring into awareness where and why you might be stuck. 

 

I am passionate about normalising “getting help”. I believe that asking for help is often a huge first step and a catalyst for change. As a person-centred counsellor I believe that we are the experts of ourselves. I would love the opportunity to support you through self-discovery, finding your own answers and help you to feel empowered to look towards the future with a better outlook and make the changes you want in your own life.

Experience

I work for two national charities and in private practice supporting young people aged 13+ and adults through counselling. I am passionate about normalising “getting help” and strongly believe that asking for help is an admirable first step in ensuing positive change. It is a hard first step to make and one I hope to make a little easier for you!

 

Over the years I have worked with a wide range of issues including anxiety, loneliness, grief, loss, body image, low mood, self-esteem, bullying, self-harm, low confidence, relationship issues, trauma, and life transitions.

 

I have found that often issues are interlinked. My hope is that by coming to counselling together we are able to explore what is causing you discomfort in the present in a safe, non-judgemental space, and work towards feeling empowered to make lasting positive changes.
