Footsteps in the sand
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”  (Lao-Tzu)


Stepping back

Life can be a struggle, zapping your energy and leaving you exhausted. It’s very easy to get tangled up in problems. Maybe my counselling approach can show you a way to press “pause” and take a step back from life to see what’s really going on – perhaps gain a different perspective?

How I work

My approach to counselling is very much person-centred which means I don’t direct you or tell you what to do.  Instead I offer the space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and worries at your own pace.  I’ll also offer a different perspective on your situation as a neutral observer.  Within a supportive, caring environment, I’ll help you find the answers to your problems, utilising your own inner resources.   Sometimes we need to be reminded that they are there and how best to use them!  I’ll navigate but you drive!

First steps

I know how hard it is to ask for help and by looking at this website you are already a step closer to making positive changes.  So for a no obligation chat please phone me on my mobile (07977 590765). If I’m unavailable and you’d like me to return your call please leave a message on my voicemail and I will call you back as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can use the form on the contacts page to email me for further information or to make an appointment.




I’ve made a wholesome veggie soup! Yay! I’ve put too much salt in!!! Boo! Not sure if that’s a cooking fail or balance!

I truly love the idea of befriending what is going inside ourselves (van der Kolk) So often we dislike the victim part and what we did to survive. But even that part deserves love and kindness.
