Hello I’m Meryl, a fully qualified and accredited therapist with a number of years experience.

Life can be difficult sometimes and it’s okay to need help from time to time. I offer a friendly, confidential and safe space for you to talk about issues that are causing you problems or worrying you.


If there are obstacles that are holding you back from living your best life, talking things through can really help.  If you're feeling overwhelmed, sad, depressed or full of anxiety, it may help to get support with these feelings through counselling. It really can help to have someone you can talk to in a completely confidential way.

Relationships, family difficulties, work, stress, the loss of a loved one, or the events and situations of daily life, can present challenges day to day and lead us to become overwhelmed with the feeling of being unable to cope. We can often feel low in mood and experience physical symptoms in our body that we cannot explain. Life feels out of control....and all wrong.

Counselling can help you step out of the quick sand so that things become clearer and you can step on solid ground again. 

As you've found this page you may have been thinking about having therapy for a while and are now ready to reach out and talk to someone.


The information on my pages detail what I can help you with. Please get in touch if you would like a no obligation chat to see how therapy can help you.
