Seeking therapy can be a scary step to take and can often bring on feelings of anxiety and fear. As a fully qualified therapeutic counsellor and psychotherapist, I am committed to supporting clients through the therapeutic process from the very beginning.
I am dedicated to providing a warm, safe and completely confidential space for people to talk and work through difficult and what can often be confusing feelings and experiences. I work in a non-judgmental way and am very respectful and understanding in my approach to each person who comes into my practice.
I have over 6 years experience of working with people who have felt troubled by their feelings and experiences and have supported people on a wide range of issues including depression, relationship issues, anxiety, bereavement, psychosis, stress, childhood sexual abuse, rape, bipolar and personality disorder.
I can provide open-ended and short term counselling depending on your needs.
I am a fully registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

My work is based on the person centred approach which ensures that you are at the centre of our work and our working relationship which I see as one of the most important factors in the therapeutic process.

I offer one hour sessions which are charged at £40 for individual counselling and £60 per hour for couples counselling. I accept block bookings, 6 sessions for the price of 5 (£200.00).
The first session is an initial consultation and this will provide an opportunity for us to discuss any concerns you have about counselling. It will also offer an opportunity for us to discuss how I work and whether this works for you as well as establishing a focus and gaining some information about you.
All enquiries are welcome!
