Welcome

Photo of me Feb 2017Hallo  !

For all sorts of reasons life can feel tough. And sometimes we need to find someone outside of our friends, family or partner to talk to.

I have long experience of working with people one-to-one in different contexts, experience which I draw on now in my counselling.  The counselling approach I use itself draws on different models  so that I can use whatever seems most appropriate and useful to you.

I  have worked with people struggling with many different difficulties eg depression, anxiety, anger, suicidal thoughts, sexual and emotional abuse, self-harm, social unease, grief …..or a general sense of something just not being right. And the people I have counselled have come from different walks of life as well as from religious and ethnic minorities and the lgbti community.

Deciding  on the ‘right’ counsellor can feel  a bit daunting so I offer the first session free. This gives you a chance for us to meet and for you to see what that is like for you.
