Mates in Mind

With a passion for listening and always being the 'Agony Aunt' of the district, I thought it was time to follow my dreams and become a professional Counsellor. With the children off my hands and with a lifetime full of experiences (not all good), I took on the long challenge and have never looked back. As long as I can remember I have always been fascinated by people and their behaviour, why do we say and do the things we say and do? Its now my mission to provide a safe and comfortable space for you, in order for me to listen to you without judgement, in the hope that I can help you to overcome the difficulties facing you?
