I am an integrative humanistic counsellor, mainly person centred but also using a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy. solution focused brief therapy and motivational interviewing where appropriate. For more than 20 years, I have worked with clients from many backgrounds, ages and identities and with a wide range of issues and concerns.

I recognise those who can feel alone with their problems  and aim to help people to examine their concerns with a sensitive non-judgemental and empathic approach in a safe and confidential location. I help people experiencing anxiety and depression, bereavement, and drug and alcohol dependency. I also offer assistance to relieve employment related stress.

I am open and supportive with an engaging and understanding manner. I am available for short- and long-term work.
