About Me

I first came to counselling through the experience of going through a divorce. I was struggling to make sense of what was happening and found myself torn between conflicting emotions and loyalties towards family members. It was a very difficult time and I couldn't see the wood for the trees. Those close to me were too emotionally involved to help me. I realised that I needed someone unattached emotionally, but with experience of similar situations who could help me through.  The counsellor I approached helped me enormously to face painful emotions, to get in touch with my self-awareness and enable me to make the best choices and face future challenges with more clarity and ease. 

At the same time I became interested in the counselling process itself.  I embarked on a Diploma in therapeutic counselling, a professional qualification that enabled me to help others. 

The combination of my academic qualifications and my personal experiences enable me to develop strong therapeutic relationships with my clients. I help clients develop a clearer understanding of their problems and how they can move forward with their lives. 

I want to help people because I know how much I have been helped by the process myself.  I believe that the more our self-awareness deepens the more able we are to take charge of our own life.
