Sometimes experiences in life can prevent us from living our life as fully as we would like to or in the way we wish. We can feel confused and stuck, unable to move forward and take charge of our lives. 

I am a counsellor with a humanistic and integrative relational orientation. I offer one-one counselling in a private, confidential and safe space. To help you, I invite you to sit down with me and to talk about what is troubling you. I listen carefully, making no judgements and helping you to make better sense of your emotions and thoughts. We explore your experiences, your feelings, and thoughts, as well as your meanings and relationships with others, understanding your patterns. 

This ‘simply talking, exploring and being truly heard’ can be helpful. It can allow you to see new perspectives for your future and to regain the confidence to make the changes you want to. It can help you clarify and strengthen your sense of self. We can do this either in my office, online or outdoors in nature but this ‘simply talking, exploring and being truly heard’ can be helpful, enabling you to feel more vital, connected and valued, ready to live your life to the full.

In addition to my private counselling practice, I have worked in a number of different settings and have a range of experience working with individuals with:

  • Disordered Eating
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance addictions and dependencies
  • OCD
  • Long-term chronic illness
  • Divorce and separation
  • Culture shock and isolation
  • Stress-related difficulties

I also have extensive experience as a pastoral tutor with young adults in a post-compulsory educational setting as well as pastoral and professional care of adults in professional settings in the UK and in a number of different areas of the world.
