About me

I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor with the primary aim of helping you to feel heard and understood in a world that doesn’t always listen. I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental and welcoming space where you can feel free to unload your burdens.

In collaboration with you, I’ll create an environment for you to express, explore and process matters that are creating distress, confusion or difficulty for you.

As an integratively trained counsellor, I use traditional talking therapy as well as more creative techniques such as drawing and guided imagery to help you to understand the root cause of the problems you’re facing.

I believe that therapy can help you to achieve an increased self-awareness, elevated self-esteem, and empower you to achieve personal growth and an improved quality of life. I aim to work one-to-one with you to overcome the problems you’re facing and facilitate a holistic approach to your health and well-being.

My areas of interest are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement & Loss
  • Family & Relationship Issues
  • Self-Esteem
  • Stress-related matters
  • Culture & Identity
  • Guilt & Shame

What to do next?

I offer a free 20-minute telephone conversation, where we can discuss your reasons for coming to counselling.

If after our telephone conversation you wish to consider counselling, we’ll agree a time for us to meet for our first session.

As a registered member of the BACP I am required to undertake Continuous Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) and regularly attend courses/events whilst completing an MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy.

My professional background is within education and learning & development, working for both the public and private sectors, so I understand the demands that can be experienced in a busy working environment.
