Life can be overwhelming. Perhaps things are feeling too much right now, but you are telling yourself that you *should* be able to handle it. Maybe you are not feeling fully or wholly yourself.


I'm Heather, a BACP - accredited counsellor, and together we can uncover and explore what is causing you difficulty, and find a way through.

I offer you a space to be seen, heard, and accepted in all your wholeness. We will explore what has brought you to therapy, and I will help you to bring greater awareness to what is happening for you. I will support you to reconnect with yourself, allowing you to look for new possibilities and to respond to life in a more choiceful way.

I work with adults on an individual basis. My practice is inclusive of all sexualities and genders, and I work affirmatively with those who are curious, questioning, coming out, or navigating this heteronormative society as an LGBTQ+ and/or GSRD (gender, sex, relationship diverse) individual. 


Here are some of the things that people bring to my practice. It is by no means an exhaustive list, and nothing is too small to bring to counselling if it is causing you difficulty or distress.

  • Feeling anxious

  • Feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or burnt out

  • LGBTQ+ and/or GSRD identity

  • Feeling stuck, trapped, or lost

  • Feeling low, sad, or depressed

  • Low confidence or low self-esteem

  • People-pleasing tendencies

  • Life changes or periods of change

  • Relationship difficulties; or difficulty connecting with others


I understand that finding the right counsellor for you can feel daunting. That's why I offer a free, no obligation 20-minute telephone call for us to meet one another and see whether it feels right. If you are ready to take this first step, then send me an email at I very much look forward to meeting you.


When I first reached out to Heather, I was feeling overwhelmed and frankly, completely lost. We spoke over a three month period, and managed to establish a strong dialogue which helped me to vocalise and process the things which were troubling me. Heather's approach is gentle and focused and it was truly a positive and healing experience talking with her. Couldn't recommend enough.
