I am a Relate trained relationship counsellor with many years’ experience, working with people in a variety of circumstances.
I aim to create a safe, non-blaming and positive space in which to reduce your anxieties, offer hope and practical strategies to help you move forward.
Creating a trusting and comfortable relationship between the client and the counsellor is a key element to successful therapy.
