Does life feel like one struggle after another? Are you feeling anxious, depressed, having problems with your relationships, or perhaps you're relying too much on alcohol to get through the day? Whatever the problem, there's no need to suffer alone.
My aim is to make you feel safe, heard and understood. I will listen to you in a warm and non-judgemental way. I don't give advice - instead, I will support you to explore your worries more deeply so that you can understand yourself better. We often don't realise that we are stuck in our ideas or that we are repeating the same unhelpful behaviours again and again.
I know it's a big step to come to counselling. But this is a time for you - where you can talk in complete confidence.
Issues I can help with include:
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and I abide by their Code of Ethics.

I spent over 20 years in the fast-paced world of Public Relations and Journalism, working in London PR consultancies. Eventually I burnt out and took a career break to study for a university degree. I then worked in mental health, setting up and running a number of service user groups in mental health and addictions. I have also worked as a tutor at the University of Surrey. My own mental health issues led me to receiving many years of therapy. It was this that sparked my interest in training to be a counsellor.
