About me

It has taken a lot of courage for you to take this first step...

I am an experienced integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and cognitive hypnotherapist who works with young people, adults and older adults. Often people feel confused, unhappy or just overwhelmed by emotions, without often understanding or knowing the reason why. Our current or past experiences may unconsciously be impacting on our current relationships and everyday life causing us to experience stress, anxiety, panic attacks or other distressing mental health issues.

I do understand that it is often not easy to seek help, but know that although we may have family and friends it is often difficult to talk honestly and openly to those closest to us for a variety of reasons.

I have worked in mental health services, counselling agencies, schools and private practice for many years, and am a sensitive and transparent therapist helping my clients through difficult and stressful times.

However, only you are the expert in your life!

I am an experienced and Accredited BACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a qualified registered Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner, who can offer you a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space within which we will work alongside each other. By utilising different therapeutic approaches, I will strive to assist you accessing your own inner strengths and resources which will assist you in becoming more confident and better able to deal with both past and future experiences and live the life you deserve.

“Every journey starts with a single step…”

I am here to walk alongside you on your journey to a more satisfying and fulfilling life. I welcome you to give me a call today on: 07821 932441 or click here to send me an email.
