A BIT ABOUT ME
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor who has a passion for supporting individuals through difficult times.
I work with adults and children, from the age of five years.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and have a current DBS certificate.
I aim to provide a safe and supportive space for you to share your thoughts and feelings.
“The human soul doesn't want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed - to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.”

SERVICES I OFFER
I take a client led approach to therapy, welcoming what is present with you in the moment in a non-judgemental way.
I have experience working with adults who have experienced anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress, self esteem issues and a general feeling of being down.
I am available to support women transition into the challenges of motherhood. I am able to provide support through fertility issues, miscarriage, birth trauma and post natal too. I understanding each journey is unique and can support you by providing a non-judgemental space to share and be.
I have supported young people through difficult periods of their life, acknowledging their concerns in a safe environment. Working with children in an interactive manner I will explore feelings and emotions, to build resilience and work towards therapeutic change.
I provide counselling sessions in Shrewsbury, but offer online services to those who are not local. Due to the current situation I am unable to provide face to face counselling. I am available for telephone or online counselling (via Skype or Zoom).
Each session is 50 minutes for adults and 45 minutes for children. The cost is £40 per session.
To arrange a session please send me an email or telephone.
I acknowledge that life can sometimes be challenging which is why I will help you identify the thoughts and emotions that could be impacting your life, whilst recognising your strengths.
I do not give advice, I enable my clients to be self governing and express a full range of emotions in a safe and secure environment. Together we can unpack whats going on for you.
THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
If your child is struggling to process their thoughts and feelings I am able to offer a safe space to listen to them.
I will support them without making them feel judged, and in confidence (unless they disclose that their personal safety is at risk).
Together we can bring awareness to thoughts and feelings and encourage them to have confidence to manage their emotions in a productive manner.
WALK AND TALK THERAPY
Are you seeking extra support but the idea of a therapy room may be too overwhelming?
I am able to meet you for a walk and talk therapy session in one of Shrewsbury's beautiful parks.
This may suit a new mum, pushing her child in a pram/pushchair.
