Step into a space where your story matters

I will listen to you with care and warmth, we can look for insights or different perspectives as we address your concerns and find a way forward. Together, we will set a pace that feels right for you. My goal is to make every online counselling session rewarding and comfortable. It’s time to live your life your way.

I became a counsellor after transformative experiences in my own therapy. Talking to a professional removed from everyday life was incredibly helpful for me. I want to provide you with the same understanding, respect, and unwavering support I received. We will work on uncovering your inner strengths, embracing your journey, and achieving the positive changes you seek.

Respect for your Uniqueness

Your uniqueness is respected and welcomed here. We can explore how your personal experiences intersect with your identity. We can consider factors like gender, sexual and relationship diversity, social background, age, religion, ethnicity, ability, neurodiversity, health, heritage, education, and political beliefs.

Online counselling can be a safe place to reveal parts of yourself that you may hide in wider society.

Online Counselling Options

We can use Microsoft Teams for our sessions, allowing you to benefit from being in your own home, car or wherever it is you feel comfortable. Some people like the relaxation of a pet or a soothing drink nearby. Teams is user-friendly, it works on phones, laptops, and tablets.  Check out my tips for online counselling here. To enhance confidentiality, you will not need to log in to Teams for our sessions.

Alternatively, you may prefer telephone sessions, which rely less on good internet connections and can reduce anxiety for those uncomfortable with using a camera.

I also offer email therapy through ProtonMail, which is highly secure and confidential. Email therapy allows pauses for reflection and considered responses, and you can write at a time that suits you.

All of these are free for you to use

Free consultation

Seeking online counselling can be daunting—I have been there.

I offer a free 15-minute conversation where we can get to know each other, and you can ask any questions. There is no commitment to work with me; it’s simply an opportunity to learn more.
