We all have a unique history that often shapes us as a person and therefore our lives. Sometimes our lives feel as if they are on track and sometimes things don’t feel right. When you are feeling stuck, uncertain, lost or are dealing with a specific issue, being able sharing your thoughts and feelings can offer them space to breathe, leading to new insights, perspectives and understanding. Feeling alone with your thoughts can be isolating and discussing them with people close to you isn’t always easy. I am here to listen without judgement, providing support and understanding. Together, we’ll navigate through whatever has brought you to counselling to help you find a way forward that feels right for you.

Room to Breathe

In my private practice ‘Room to Breathe Counselling’ I offer you the chance to stop and take a breath, away from you day to day life, so that you can focus on what has made you seek counselling. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself and your situation and help you find a way forward.

The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Taking the first step can feel really challenging but I aim to make this as comfortable as I can for you.

I have worked for a variety of charities in Wiltshire both in a counselling role and as a support practitioner. I have experience of supporting people with a wide variety of different issues I have worked in education and supported families with children with additional needs.

I offer a free 20-minute initial consultation online or on the phone to find out what you would like support with and to talk about how we might work together. I work online on the telephone, and in person.
