It’s Possible to Start Feeling Better

As your individual counsellor, I will collaborate with you to find your best way forward.

Through the course of my life I've struggled with different problems. I would often find myself in situations where I felt unable to cope, panicking and reacting to situations in unhelpful ways. Because of this, I know how hard life can be when you are facing these challenges. But it also allows me to know that overcoming problems is possible.

Areas I treat



Individual Counselling Peterborough

I work from my home in one of the new properties off Thorpe Road, next to the City Day Care Centre.

The address is 33 St Johns Close Peterborough, PE3 6GZ. Because the property is new it is sometimes better to use the post code PE3 6DB.

There is plenty of parking just outside my house. Call when you arrive and I'll tell you where to park. Any problems finding me let me know. See here for google maps.

I look forward to meeting.
