I am a qualified counsellor with 4 years experience working with young people, adults and families. I gained a broad range of experience working with both male and female counselling settings. I offer a confidential non-judgemental space and time for you to explore any life issues/problems which you may have and help you find new ways to achieve positive life changes. My counselling experiences include depression, anxiety/stress, addiction, domestic violence and abuse and many other issues which can have a significant impact on our lives.

Within my nursing career as a dual qualified nurse (16years experience), I gained extensive knowledge and skill in training facilitation. I can also relate to how the body and mind are inextricably connected. I therefore have an interest in both the physical and emotional/mental well-being of my clients. I am passionate about counselling and regularly partake in various training topics/programmes.
