Counselling Rotherham

I am a counsellor, based in Wath upon Dearne, Rotherham. I have been told I am a born counsellor, so this is what my whole life has been leading towards. I have been through the mill just as you may be doing right now, but have mastered everything thrown into my path. And I can help you.

I am very easy to talk to and a brilliant listener!

I take good care of myself, mixing up the following activities means I maintain a fulfilling life: walking, gardening, cooking, church and tai chi.

My personal beliefs are congruent with my spiritual Christian faith and experiences, the relevant ones are:

  • You were born to be loved
  • You are unique and it's for you alone to determine your future
  • You are not a finished book but compassion, empathy and kindness help write the next pages

In counselling, I am constantly amazed at how effective just listening is!

Perhaps, at some point in your childhood, you have not been allowed to be heard. You might have had to work hard to feel accepted by significant others, but I am genuinely compassionate and will give you my full attention and listening to help you discover what has brought you to your present situation.

In order for you to know what to do, which way to go in life, it is useful to know yourself. My integrative approach is very effective in helping you get a true sense of self. "Integrative" here means that whatever your emerging issues may be, I have a mixture of counselling approaches to draw on, and so will tailor the therapy to your particular needs.

Online therapy

I offer counselling by video (Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, Messenger) Sessions are an hour as with face-to-face. If you are good at expressing yourself by writing, then you could also have counselling by email or text messaging.

I worked as a counsellor in the NHS occupational health, where workplace stress was endemic; and I worked at a domestic abuse charity where survivors of all kinds of abuse needed to complete their recovery. In short, I am used to helping people deal with anxiety, relationship problems and low self-esteem, but with other issues thrown in too.

Person-Centred therapy, which is one of the approaches I use, is particularly effective in helping overcome situations like when you worked really hard and have a good career, but your personal relationships are unfulfilling.

Existential therapy is a way of examining the meanings you have formed in life, and is used when an existential threat to life as you knew it has brought about change that you are struggling to deal with. Like if you were made redundant or your partner left you.

I have a life full of spiritual experiences and so am more than happy to work with you if you cannot find anyone talk to about your own beliefs. This aspect of my life means I am very well able to help with other issues, including bereavement, loss, grief, guilt and shame.

Most common issues I support people with:


Relationship problems

Low self-esteem
