"Your imagination is your preview of life's coming attractions."
- Albert Einstein
Does life feel like its getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to get back on a front foot again

Making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step to take - but it can be a positive one. Please read on to find out more about how I could help you.
Counselling takes place in a safe environment, where we can meet with sensitivity and empathy - and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.
Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression - many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a deeper understanding of self, insight and opportunities for healing we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
Working together we can gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, helping you understand why you act or react and see how you can start to make better responses and heathier choices moving forward.
I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with an independent and impartial listener from outside your day-to-day life.
Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Therapy isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with:
Dealing with Stress
Low self esteem

"When I think of all that I have gained from your wisdom and insight and your genuine capacity to care about me, I realise I have been blessed just to have known you!"
