Are you worrying about something? Do you want to talk to a professional in a private area? Need someone to really listen to help you feel better?

Would you like any of the following?

  • The ability to make decisions in your life and sort something out that is worrying you
  • Ways to release limiting beliefs, overcome obstacles and plan ahead
  • To find your place and purpose in the world
  • To find that capacity and excellence that you know you have
  • To feel mentally stronger
  • Assertive skills that give you the ability to ask for something and usually get it
  • To feel more in control
  • Better relationships
  • To learn how to communicate better
  • The discovery of how to get new friends and new hobbies
  • To understand yourself better
  • To wake up each day feeling calmer and more positive

Nothing in life can be guaranteed, but discover how counselling with me might help to be the turning point in your life. Consider what have you got to lose by worrying, and how much could you gain by doing something?

Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows you to talk about problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment. My aim is to empower you to reach a more fulfilling life.

I am trained to listen with empathy (by putting myself in your shoes). I can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings that you have. I can help you to understand why you are feeling the way you are and locate your hidden potential. I am an 'integrative counsellor' and I use client centered and humanistic approaches.
