About me

We are all unique, shaped by our life experiences and relationships, particularly those from childhood. With my help and support you can explore whatever has caused you to seek counselling and discover how the past can influence the way you think, feel and behave in the present. I can help you to recognise and unpack destructive or unhelpful patterns of thinking or behaviour that may have developed as a result of those experiences and relationships.

To do this, I will provide a safe, confidential, and comfortable environment at a regular time for you to talk about your untold experiences. I can help and support you to gradually explore and express any difficult feelings and emotions that you are struggling with. Working together, I can offer you tools and techniques to help you discover your inner strengths and uncover links between your past and present experiences. This will help you find solutions to your difficulties, broaden your sense of self, and enable you to make lasting, effective positive change.  

My work encompasses working with adults and young people age 12+

As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to their ethical guidelines for safe practice and attend regular supervision.

My clinical experience comes from working as a Counsellor within a category C prison and at Peterborough Rape Crisis Centre, also from my work at Peterborough Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) where I was employed as a Counsellor to support sexually abused children and their families.
