People from all walks of life come for counselling, and I hope the following information helps you decide whether to make contact with me.
I have been a counsellor since 2011, and I welcome and work with adults of all ages and genders. Confidential sessions take place at my practice in Eastleigh or online through VSee, Zoom or Skype. Sessions are weekly or fortnightly on a long or short-term basis.
I can be there for you in a caring and nurturing way, including with life experiences such as loss and bereavement, depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, the effects of domestic abuse/violence, pregnancy and parenting issues, low self-esteem, stress or relationship issues.
I am easy to talk to, and I won't judge or define you or tell you what's best for you. As a person-centred counsellor, I will work to ensure you feel heard and understood, yet can also get a fresh perspective on things and develop your awareness. I will also help you build confidence and trust in your strengths and inner resources, so you can move forward in a way that is right for you.
Counselling sessions can include the use of art and other mediums - sometimes, it's hard to put thoughts and feelings into words. Similarly, you may prefer a creative therapeutic approach or wish to try out the different art mediums. Whatever way we might work together, my role is to help you make sense of your struggles, find a way through them and continue to be the best that you can be.
If you would like to book an introductory session or ask questions about the counselling I can offer you, please call 07729 193629, email me through this profile or my website.

I am experienced in bereavement counselling, and I'm here for you if you're struggling to cope with a loved one's disability, life-limiting or terminal illness, or the death of a friend, family member, partner or child. I have received specialist training in baby loss - miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death, yet I can help if you've suffered the loss of a child or grandchild of any age.
If you're a survivor of domestic abuse, including being exposed to abuse and violence in your childhood or teenage years, I can support you in your healing journey. You can also get in touch if you're worried about a person under the age of 18 - perhaps you suspect or know that they're in an abusive relationship and would like support with this.
I can help you with stress and challenges in pregnancy and with parenthood. I have both personal insight and professional knowledge of autism, and I can help if you're parenting a child suspected of or recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
With a professional background in adult mental health, I am here for you if you're affected by depression, anxiety, perinatal or postnatal depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress or borderline personality disorder.
