I have worked in various environments engaging with diverse ages and backgrounds including the NHS, a community counselling hub, with teens and young adults in a large secondary school.

Are you struggling with relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, depression, bereavement/loss, stress/anxiety, self-harm, abuse, feeling overwhelmed, or wrestling with a particular issue and need a safe space to explore the challenges you are facing? Sharing thoughts and feelings with a counsellor takes courage. I can offer a welcoming, non-judgmental safe space, whatever your background, culture, beliefs, or sexual orientation, and together we can explore, be curious and learn new skills to manage feelings.
