About me

Have you ever found yourself trapped, possibly disliking who you have become and feeling others blaming you too? Have you found that you haven’t reached your full potential and you're not where you expected yourself to be in your life? Do you ever feel disappointed in yourself? We can work together to help you understand how you came to be the person that you are today, and how to make positive changes in your life. Through our work together we will start to bring awareness to your emotions, thought processes, and behaviours – which will enable you to design ways to manage your life.

In our sessions I tend to work flexibly, drawing on a range of specialisms to relationally explore what makes you, you. We collaborate together at your pace to help you manage what you have been experiencing and then work together to help you take back control. My passion is to support people to make sense of what they are experiencing and become free. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I’ve been supporting people just like yourself for over a decade to make positive sustained changes, and have been practicing as a counsellor since 2019. I am currently 4 years into my Advanced Psychotherapy training in TA, and have Systemic Therapy training.

I am registered with SWE, UKATA, and UKCP- and also have qualifications in psychotherapeutic counselling, CTF, and MSW.
