About me

My aim is to create a warm confidential safe space for you to feel respected, heard, understood and supported, enabling you to find meaning in your difficulties. My belief is that Counselling can improve your self-awareness and in doing so will help you feel differently about yourself and life.

My inspiration for this career stems from a desire to connect and communicate with people. This inclination has been a thread throughout my life. Having undertaken Counselling myself I have directly experienced the cathartic and powerful change that it can bring about. This both inspired me to train as a counsellor and enabled me to develop a more profound learning process.

I am trained as an 'Integrative Relational Psychotherapeutic Counsellor'. I draw on a framework of areas such as Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Gestalt and Cognitive theories to inform my work.
I am also interested in mindfulness and meditation techniques to bring about understanding, compassion, self-care and change. I can therefore work in a flexible way to ensure that our therapeutic relationship gives you the maximum support.

I will work to help you understand how past events and problems can influence the current way you view yourself and others. This may include destructive thoughts and patterns of behaviour. During the initial consultation we will discuss what has prompted you to contact me including any information you are willing to share, and what you hope to achieve from counselling.

I believe that the process of personal development, within a supportive and trusting therapeutic relationship can bring lasting change.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Depending on the needs of each individual, I offer both short term and long term work with clients, and see clients on a weekly basis. Short term work usually means weekly sessions, and is usually for a limited period of time. Long term work is open ended - meaning that no end date is set. Frequency of sessions is totally dependant on the individual and their presenting problems, and is often negotiated as the work progresses. Recognition of the client's needs is an ongoing process because everyone is different and therefore they will have different needs.


Feeling comfortable with your choice of therapist is essential for effective counselling. For this reason I offer an introductory appointment for £35, with no pressure to rebook.

Regular sessions cost £50 and last 50 minutes.

I do however offer a limited number of concessionary places and I am very happy to discuss this with you.
