Green Shoots Counselling

Therapeutic counselling, walking the journey together


Individual Counselling

Seeking counselling can be difficult and taking the first step even more. I work through challenges with individuals always putting you at the centre of our time together, short or longer term.

Emergency Services

I have a history of working with the blue light family for when the things you see on duty, remain with you off duty. I can work with the challenges of shifts and work flexibly around these.

Mindfullness & Creativity

Counselling brings discovery, understanding of your feelings and relationships. I use creativity to help unearth a pathway through the challenges. It has helped with grounding and mindfullness.

My Values & Approach

At the centre of our work is you.

As a person centred counsellor I work with dignity and respect and to your agenda. I am fully insured and work to the BACP ethical framework. I have regular clinical supervision to make sure I am working to your needs and benefit.


"It has been a complete pleasure to have such kindness and help. I thank you from the bottom of my heart"

"The experience has allowed me to begin to value me as a person and for that I am grateful"

"My experience has given me back my future. It has enabled me to have a place to come and talk and just be me and feel I have the tools and own ability to change and adapt to whatever direction my life will take me. I have never felt that way before."

"I will remember this experience for a very long time and not take for granted how I feel today"
