Maybe you’ve arrived here due to a recent or previous difficulty, or maybe you’ve gravitated here for any other number of reasons. Whatever it is, you might be searching for some kind of support in your life or it might be that you’re seeking to find some depth or authenticity in your relationships.
There are times when speaking with someone neutral can help us in times of great difficulty and strain. In my experience, simply having someone witness and acknowledge our experience can be deeply healing and transformative.
Time does not always heal all wounds. There are times when the reverberations of tragedy, loss and trauma can leave us feeling stuck or unable to move on in our lives. How then do we heal and restore what is injured? Therapy offers a safe space within which we can talk about our experience with care and attention. Counselling allows us the opportunity to think and feel and work through all that is holding us back in our lives. Sometimes speaking with someone neutral can help us during periods of stress and anxiety. In my experience, simply having someone neutral witness and acknowledge our experience can be deeply supportive and transformative.
I know that no single therapeutic approach is the right one for every single individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities including Psychodynamic Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, and Mindfulness. This breadth of experience allows me to tailor the therapeutic experience to meet your individual needs and requirements.
Training, qualifications & experience
My educational background includes a BA(Hons) in Fine Art Painting from Norwich School of Art & Design and a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from Hills Road College Cambridge. I have recently studied the effects of Trauma at the Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust, London and shortly begin a Master’s Degree in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I work as a Counsellor at Bridge Street Medical Centre, The Cogwheel Trust CIO, as well as Linton Infant CoE School. I also practise privately. In addition, I teach on the Adult Education Counselling Programme at Hills Road Sixth Form College. I also have experience of working with young people at Centre 33, and The Blue Smile Project in Cambridge.
I would be happy to respond to any enquiries you may have.

I am a qualified counsellor living and working in the Cambridge area and I offer a safe and supportive environment to help and support my clients, who include children, young people and adults through the process of counselling. Over the last few years I have successfully helped people work through anxiety, anger, depression, loss, bereavement, identity, ageing, trauma, PTSD, as well as existential themes of meaning and transiency.
