About me

I am an experienced, BACP registered and accredited counsellor/psychotherapist providing both short and long-term therapy.

I work with adults, teenagers and children offering a safe, respectful and caring environment to off-load difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

My training not only enables me to work with clients from a holistic perspective, looking at mind, body and social environment, but also to adapt the therapy to individual needs on any presented issue.

Successful therapy is dependent upon a good working relationship between client and therapist. With that in mind, I offer a free introductory 30 minute assessment session.

I have experience working in various settings including:

  • NHS
  • Schools

My ten years of experience has allowed me to develop a safe, supportive, warm environment in which my clients can explore the presented issues and come to a place where they feel empowered to initiate change and move through detrimental patterns of behaviour.

I am certified in:

  • Play therapy
  • Relationship counselling
  • Individual therapy
  • Group work
  • Jikiden Reiki healing

Further information
