Psychotherapy centred on your needs

Get In Touch











We offer a safe and confidential space where you can explore anything in your life across a wide range of issues and feelings that may be troubling you.

Connected Counselling is about making a connection, helping you to make a start on addressing the issues that may be affecting your quality of life. I specialise in particular in trauma counselling, sports psychotherapy, alongside providing psychotherapy and counselling across general mental health issues. Located in Shropshire means I can also provide services for the rural community, where sometimes accessing support can be more difficult. However, I provide psychotherapy in Shropshire for a wide range of clients across the local area, at all stages of life, and with all kinds of problems.

How does counselling help?

Counselling provides a space for you to work through and explore thoughts, problem and issues. It can help you to gain insight and a see a different perspective. Each therapy session is client focused, meaning that it's aimed around your needs and working with you, to find the best approach for you. It can help to increase your self-awareness, build your confidence, and regain balance in your life. It can also work to build mental and emotional resilience, as well as improve your self-motivation.

Based in Newport, I cover the local area including Shropshire and Staffordshire, making counselling accessible to all, including those in the rural communities.

What Is Counselling?








I'm aware that it's a huge step to even reach out for counselling, and finding the right counsellor for you is really important. Counselling is a form of therapy that works through talking. It is a journey, where we can talk through any problems or troubling thoughts that you might have. Together we can consider how to work through your problems in a confidential and respectful way. It's important to remember that counselling is not an easy option.

With this in mind, why not arrange a free 20-minute call or online chat to see if my approach works for you?

You can also arrange a call back by emailing me via
