About Me



We all at times struggle to cope with issues, whether in our

personal lives, work, educational settings or within the family.


When I struggled to cope, I felt alone, as though I had

reached rock bottom and could see no way out of the dark

place I was in. I then received Counselling, which gave me

the courage and self-esteem to make the changes I needed to function more positively and to move forward. I saw the light

at the end of the tunnel.


After having personal experiences of Counselling, realising the benefits and having such a positive outcome, I decided in 2012 to retrain as a Counsellor. I wanted to give the support and help

to others as I had received. During my training I worked as a student Counsellor for

a local Bereavement Charity, which I still volunteer for today.
