I would like to wish you a warm welcome.

If the reason you have reached this site is because you are seriously fearing your own, or someone elses' safety, then please call emergency services asap. Those services are anonymous and their role is to support you to feel safe and secure, which is a basic human need, and right! So please don't hesitate to reach out to them before going any further. I am not a crisis counsellor, so if you think there is a crisis at hand, please give them a call, they are available 24/7. 



If however, you are here because you or the person you are concerned about are feeling: 

  • overwhelmed,

  • devastated by loss,

  • afraid of the future (anxious),

  • defeated or emotionally exhausted (depressed),

  • alone, 

  • afraid of current circumstances,

  • disempowered in a relationship or work place role, 

  • disempowered by someone else,

  • grieving, 

  • stuck or feeling helpless, 

  • afraid of thoughts, 

  • unsure of what your wellbeing needs

or maybe you simply need talk to someone who is a mental health professional and can ensure your issues stay confidential, or maybe you are experiencing: 

  • Flashbacks from a traumatic event, of any kind,

  • Memories (or even suspect memories) of childhood sexual abuse,

  • Panic attacks, 

  • Fatigue, 

  • Health issues that are being affected by your mental health, or vice versa,

  • PTSD,

  • Dissociation,

  • Fatigue, 

  • Depression, 

  • Thoughts that are causing you concern or distress,

  • Social anxiety,

  • Trauma,

or perhaps you know that something is depleting you're energy but you're not sure what it is, then I'm glad you have reached this site because there is a very good chance that Counselling and Psychotherapy can work to support you through and help you regain wellbeing.


I know reaching out is difficult, but I also know that no-one should ever go through any of this alone. We are social creatures and we need each other. And sometimes that 'other' needs to be a professional that has training specific to your needs. After all, we use teachers to learn about subjects, so gaining insight into our mental health should not be any different, so please feel welcome and take your time with the next steps. 

If, at this point you are feeling too overwhelmed to keep reading to see if my approach is right for you, then it's ok, you can give me a call or write me an email and I can answer any questions you have, please don't hesitate, I will respond as soon as I can, which is usually within 24 hours. 

If however, you feel calm enough to take in more information and you would like to know more, you can read more about me, my qualifications, registrations and ethos in the about page here​, and you can read more about my approach and methodology here

“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when they are doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”

― Carl R. Rogers
