About me

I offer short and long term counselling to adults and young people with Transactional Analysis (TA) as my style of working. TA allows us to look at how we relate to our world, our relationships and the things which happen to us allowing for reflection and change if desired.

I also hold a certificate in Trauma focused therapy. This internationally recognised qualification allows me to support clients in stabilising, processing and integration techniques following traumatic events or traumatic life experiences. 

I believe that building a trusting and safe relationship between me as the therapist and you as the client is key to successful therapy. My style is gentle, empathic and holding, providing you with a safe place to explore what is troubling you.

Sessions can take place either face to face in the therapy practice, over zoom or by phone if you would prefer. 

I can provide support with the following issues:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Autism & Learning difficulties
  • Partner & Family relationships
  • Loss & Grief
  • Lifestyle and Health changes
  • Growing up
  • Personal development
  • Self esteem/self confidence
  • Career issues

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed four years of Transactional Analysis (TA) psychotherapy training at the Link Centre, Newick, East Sussex. I hold a Diploma in Counselling.

Alongside my private practice, I have previously worked as a tutor supporting trainee counsellors with their skills practice. I have also been an examiner for students taking their written and verbal exams in counselling.

While training, I worked in the educational sector, giving counselling to students. I have also worked for a wonderful charity who support unpaid carers.

I am a member of the UK Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA) and the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS).
