Sometimes life can be disappointing, uninspiring, exhausting, just hard. You can experience feelings of sadness, loneliness, anger, frustration, despair, fear. These feelings may become too much for you to manage. When this happens you may wonder who to turn to, you may also wonder how anyone else will understand what is happening for you. Perhaps you are thinking about how to change things in your life, but not sure where to start?

As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, I cannot tell you what to do, but I am here to support, encourage and offer a non-judgemental listening ear as you explore what may be causing you difficulty. We will work together, at your pace with sessions that meet your individual needs and uniqueness.

I know this step can be daunting, but it can be very rewarding. This is about you, a chance to express how things really are. It is about feeling safe through a relationship based on trust and respect. It is about taking time for yourself, with the hope of initiating change and moving in a more fulfilling direction.

I work from a wellbeing centre based in Sherwood, situated in a quiet, discreet location. It is easily accessible by public transport. Parking spaces are usually available at the premises. There are also free car parks and some on street parking nearby. I see clients over 18 years of age with a range of issues. This can be short term or long term.

Below are a few of the areas of counselling I help people with.

I have a particular interest in how the relationship with food can affect emotional and physical wellbeing. Therefore I am also a volunteer counsellor with First Steps Eating Disorders, for which I have received specialist training.
