About me

I offer a safe, non judgemental space for you to talk, and to work through what's going on for you now. I came to counselling myself during my teens when I needed a safe, confidential environment to explore my thoughts and feelings, discovering the benefits first hand.

My aim is to create a space that you feel comfortable in in order to talk about what you wish. I believe that you are the expert of yourself and my job is to work along side and help you navigate any obstacles that may be preventing your personal growth.

I have been a counsellor for 7 years and have worked within schools, both primary and senior, and with a number of charities supporting adults.

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I’m guided by their ethical framework. I am an ally to the LGBTQIA community and have attended further training within this area, most recently with Gendered Intelligence.

I always prefer to have an initial session for us to meet each other and make sure we feel comfortable working together. Although if you would prefer a can offer a 15 minute call over the phone instead.

Either way, please get in touch with me and we can talk about how to start your counselling journey.
