I am an integrative counsellor practising in the Larne area. I have experience working with adults, children and young people with a range of issues e.g. mental health, depression, anxiety, exam stress, bullying, addiction, relationship problems and many more.

It’s not easy taking that first step. I am here to listen and help you in a confidential and non-judgemental way. Change is possible, life can be difficult and sometimes we can be overwhelmed by our emotions.

Make that first step via phone, email or text
