About me

I understand how hard it can be to take the first steps to see a counsellor and I will be sensitive and non-judgemental in supporting you through this process. I offer friendly and welcoming counselling sessions, where I aim to explore with you the issues which you are struggling with. These may be related to traumatic life events: early childhood trauma especially can make it difficult to regulate thoughts and feelings, leading to low mood and anxiety. With a compassionate approach, I will work with you to look at how past events or relationships may still be impacting on you and how to move forward.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, so I draw on different counselling theories and approaches to best suit your needs. I particularly value working in a person-centred way, which means I am directed by you and the pace you want to work at. I also value creativity and mindfulness, and may sometimes use these in my counselling sessions, but only if this is something you are comfortable with.

I have a broad and varied working experience, having worked with both young people and adults. I’ve worked in the voluntary sector, supporting people’s mental health through art and with adults in a centre providing low cost counselling. In my private practice I only offer sessions to age 18 and over.

If you would like to discuss setting up an initial session, please do give me a call or drop me an email and we can talk about what you hope to get out of counselling. After the initial session we could arrange further sessions if you would like to; these can be weekly/fortnightly.
