Hi am Shirley and I am an Humanistic Integrated Counsellor offering:

  • Counselling  

  • Animal Assisted Therapy    

  • Walk and Talk Therapy

As an integrated counsellor I believe everyone is unique so I can adapt the counselling to suit the client. Sessions are fluid so if you would like to try AAT or Walk and Talk I can integrate them into the sessions.

Qualification, training and experience

I specialise in helping those who are having suicidal thoughts, contemplating suicide or have been bereaved by suicide.


However you do not need to be in crisis to seek counselling, you may have a difficult decision to make or are feeling generally anxious and panicky and don't know why. I can provide a safe space for you to explore what is happening in your life at this time.



Oh! and   I enjoy paddling in the sea !
