About me

Making the decision to come for counselling is selfless and brave and has the potential to really enhance how you feel about yourself and your life.

Although we cannot predict what life holds we can choose to seek help and support when life feels tough. It may be that you are feeling stressed, anxious, tired, overwhelmed or depressed. These are things that can be really helped by talking about them.

I will provide you with a safe, confidential, non judgemental and down to earth counselling experience. I am warm, welcoming and empathic and I understand that deciding to come for counselling can be a big step. I want to offer you reassurance that sessions are about you and what you need. I can explain how we can work together to enhance your life experiences enabling you to live the life you want to.

As a specialism I have in-depth knowledge of autism, Asperger syndrome and PDA (pathological demand avoidance). These conditions can create very high levels of anxiety as you try to make sense of the world around you. This can be very debilitating. Together we can discuss and explore how your condition affects you and explore ways to enable you to reduce or manage the anxiety in your life.


Whatever it may be, no matter how big or small the difficulty may seem to you, counselling will often be able to help and support you.

I am an experienced Integrative counsellor and Member of the BACP

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a member of the BACP and SEBDA. I will provide support and counselling to youths from the age of 10 upwards and adults.
In addition to my accredited counselling training with Greenwich University I have completed an indepth course on working with and understanding autism with he Open University. I also have personal experience of autism and PDA which I believe helps to enhance the therapeutic relationship. I have experience working with people who have autism.
I have completed CPD in mindfulness, plus an accredited course in understanding and supporting children and adults who have PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance), a condition that creates an extraordinary amount of pressure from ordinary everyday tasks. I have undertaken an accredited course on social stories and comic strip conversations as well as many one day CPD events on working with young people, PDA, autism in the counselling room, childhood and attachment difficulties, creative therapeutic sessions, survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and motivational interviewing. I have worked for many years as family support for families where there is a family member with ADHD/ASD/PDA and those with mild to moderate learning difficulties.
