About Me

Most of us have moments when we feel low, anxious or, in some other way, overwhelmed. Whatever is going on for you, talking about it is a good idea.  And sometimes, it can also be easier if that conversation is with someone outside your immediate circle.  Someone who can focus wholly on you.


I spent 30 years as a journalist, listening to people and reflecting their life experiences. My wish has always been to connect deeply and authentically with others and now, as a BACP registered counsellor, I am able to do that therapeutically. 


My offering is a safe, confidential space for us to explore your thoughts and feelings and to listen to that little voice inside you which is often muted, or drowned out in the maelstrom.  Doing so can be scary, but also life-changing.


So take a deep breath.  Come and experience therapy with me.  Because, in my experience, the best way to make sense of who we really are and what is happening to us is to let that voice be heard.
