Coming to counselling will provide you with a safe confidential place to talk, get support, make decisions, resolve trauma.

You will meet a professional who is trained to listen to you with understanding and compassion and without judgement.

Everyone experiences difficulty at some time in their life. It is only human to experience feelings of worry, anxiety, and stress. Sometimes we need more support than a family member or a friend can offer us.

I work with teenagers and adults, in a holistic way. Depending on the person and the issue we will work in different ways utilizing a humanistic approach and different theories including CBT: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy, Reality Therapy, Gestalt Therapy.
