About me

It can be nerve wracking to reach out and it takes a lot of courage to ask for help. You might think, 'maybe my problem isn't really that bad, they'll think I'm making a fuss' or alternatively, you are on your knees and not sure how you are going to get through the day.

At times like this it can help to seek solace from someone who is not involved in your everyday life. I offer a safe, caring environment where we can dedicate the time and attention to the things that are making life tough - for whatever reason.

As we work together you can gain the trust and support you need within the relationship for the gentle process of therapy to take place.

I bring a range of therapies into the session to help you frame what is happening in your life in a way which can bring meaning and resolution. I draw on CBT, Person-centred, Transactional analysis. I have a Masters in Addiction Psychology and Counselling (Distinction)

I offer sessions in the comfortable, safe, and private environment of my own home.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and of the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals. I adhere to their ethical frameworks.

I have worked in two different drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres where I have done one to one counselling and facilitated group therapy.

My training allows me to have a fundamental psychological understanding of what can be the drivers to addiction - attachment, trauma, abuse, genetics or family systems. This gives me a good framework of understanding about addiction and codependency to offer you in a counselling session. However, each person is unique and I do not use my experience to assign labels but to give a holistic understanding of addiction. Most importantly it is about you - your goals, your needs, your struggles. I take an eclectic approach in my work, drawing from the person centred philosophy but also using transactional analysis and existential approaches to inform my work.
