As an experienced counsellor in Wantage, Oxfordshire, I provide support both online and in-person for adolescents and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or stress. My approach is rooted in genuine empathy and understanding, built on the foundation of active listening.

With a focus on some of the common reasons clients seek advice for trauma, attachment, depression, anxiety, emotional regulation, behaviour, and relationships, my passion lies in assisting others on their journey. I offer support to bring clarity and harmony, fostering understanding and guidance in a calm, confidential space.

Taking the first step is challenging; hence, I provide a FREE 15-minute telephone consultation—friendly, informal, and confidential—an opportunity to discuss concerns and outline the issues you wish to address, without any obligation to continue if you decide otherwise.
