About Me

An experienced counsellor working with children, young people and adults…


People often worry about what other people think and so keep experiences and worries locked up inside them and that’s the real benefit of talking to a counsellor. I’m completely independent and on your side – I really won’t judge you and I’ve been working with children and adults for many years.  

If you have more questions that aren’t answered here then please get in touch, I am more than happy to talk on the phone or exchange emails before you decide to book your first appointment.

I look forward to hearing from you.
