Finding someone, even a friend or member of the family, with the time to listen and understand our problems without passing judgement isn't always easy. As a qualified counsellor I am here to offer you that service. Whether you need empowerment to deal with a specific problem or feel the need to begin a longer journey to rediscover your sense of well being, I will give you my full attention with the aim between us of achieving your goals.


I work with people on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time in a safe and confidential environment.



“What we hunger for, perhaps more than anything else, is to be known in our full humanness. It is important that we convey, at least from time to time, the secret of who we truly are, because it makes it easier that way to see where we have been in our lives and where we are going. This kind of openness also means other people can tell us a secret or two of their own, and exchanges like that have a lot to do with what being human is all about.”

Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets
