About Me

I experience many clients saying that they don’t believe that their problems are bad enough - there must be others in need who are suffering more, or that it is indulgent to go for counselling. Maybe people around them have questioned if they really need to get help? If you are finding it hard to manage for whatever reason, remember that you deserve to be heard and that your experiences, memories and feelings are real for you.  

Signs it is time to get help

  • Thinking about coping with the issue takes up a least an hour a day
  • The issue causes embarrassment or shame or makes you want to avoid others
  • The issue has caused your quality of life to decrease
  • The issue has negatively affected school, work or relationships
  • You’ve made changes in your life or developed habits or behaviours to cope with the issue
  • Your symptoms are bad enough that you may cause harm to yourself or others


Each client will experience a fresh approach with me as we co-create the therapeutic relationship. You are the expert on your own life, and yet everyone can benefit from a skilled professional perspective on a recent event or a life-long difficulty. 

Working in open-ended long term therapy or short-term contracts. I am connected, creative and dedicated to you in your session. Careful listening with presence and compassion can lead to meaningful change. 

Often a problem, personality issue, a psychological disturbance or set of symptoms gets given a label - these labels can change over time and are sometimes helpful, sometimes, not.  

Below are some of the common issues coming up for clients at the moment.  Whilst I work with the whole person, it can be helpful to think about these labels and diagnoses as descriptions of parts of human experience and the social systems that we live in.   

  • family issues
  • relationships
  • addiction
  • depression
  • loss & bereavement
  • life transitions
  • stress & anxiety
  • self-development
  • confidence
