Who is counselling for?


Counselling is for anyone who feels they want to share the burden of life's emotional struggles, whatever they are for you, exploring how these may have come about and finding ways of creating change. It is about self investigation and developing an awareness of how you relate to others and yourself, leading to many new possibilities in how you might manage the affects of this in your day to day life.

How does Counselling work?

Through a relationship which solely focuses on what you need to heal, an enhanced awareness of yourself is created, highlighting how your own past and present circumstances may have affected the way you feel inside. Through this you are able to develop new insights and see more possibilities when faced with feeling stuck or suffering overwhelming anxieties that may have previously felt unmanageable.


Sometimes a space just to feel heard and face the feelings that you may have previously wanted to push away or to not burden others with is a valuable, healing space, full of potential and hope.

How will I help you?

I will provide a safe and confidential space.  I will help you think about and understand your feelings and experiences so that they become more manageable and digestible. Over time this process will free emotional pain, allowing for growth and long lasting change.
