About me

Having the courage to discuss what's troubling you with a counsellor can be a really hard thing to do. So I'd like to reassure you that no matter how great or small your problems seem to you, I will treat you with warmth, respect and without judgement, and offer you a space in which we can explore your thoughts and feelings together, in confidence, going at a pace you feel comfortable with.

I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor with experience in the NHS, with young adults in a university health centre and within private practice. I am integratively trained, which means I can draw on a range of therapeutic skills to best suit your needs and the outcome you want.

Symptoms and life issues that I frequently work with include depression, anxiety, parenting concerns (including becoming a parent & post-natal depression), low self-esteem, relationship problems, bereavement & loss, coping with a medical diagnosis, and anger issues. But many people come to counselling without a label for what's troubling them - for example frequent low mood without knowing the cause, a sense of hopelessness, an awareness that they are repeating the same mistakes over again, or a general feeling that their life is not the way they would like it to be.

Counselling can help in many different ways - from the relief and clarity you gain once you've shared what's troubling you, to a life-changing self-awareness that is often discovered through therapy, which can bring hope, choice, and empowerment.
