About me

I am a qualified counsellor who began my journey into the counselling profession after training as a Primary school teacher, which developed my interest in the emotional barriers faced by children and young people.

Through my training, I have supported adults experiencing anxiety, relationship difficulties and domestic abuse.

In my work with children and young people's charities, I have supported young people who have experienced loss, bereavement, social anxiety and relationship issues. I have also supported parents managing children's challenging behaviour at home.

I support children in school experiencing difficulties with parental separation, gender identity, anxiety, loss, bereavement and social skills. Some of these children have had moderate learning difficulties such as autism and ADHD.

I am interested in ensuring that everyone has access to talking therapies and I can use creative techniques to engage people in sharing and making sense of all their experiences whilst also building their self-esteem and coping strategies.
