For Individuals

For IndividualsCounselling can help you, and someone you care about, find what you are looking for. Taking the first step is the hardest.  By identifying issues which are troubling you, with the expertise of the right counsellor, you will be guided through challenging obstacles, and be able to move on to a more comfortable place in life.

For Couples and Relationships

For Couples and RelationshipsOur relationships change constantly.  There are highs, lows and plateaus.  Even strong relationships go through 'rocky patches'.  They can be emotionally demanding, difficult and distressing to deal with alone. In a safe and secure environment, counselling explores the possible causes and effects, enabling a new way forward.

For Families and Young People

For Families and Young PeopleFamily relationships can be tough. Through individual or group counselling, families can learn how to understand each other better and get along. Children and teenagers face many challenges. I specialise in counselling children and teenagers, helping them cope, and enabling them to express difficult feelings in a more positive way.
