About me

I am a psychotherapist who is passionate in supporting individuals to find their freedom and to live the lives they deserve.

Do you want to create change, find relief and feel good? If you can say yes, you have come to the right place.

About you

You have worked incredibly hard to get where you are and you refuse to continue putting up with your difficulties. You no longer want to struggle alone, feeling anxious, stressed or overwhelmed on a daily basis. 

You want to be you, without anxiety, stress, self doubt or anything else, affecting everything you think, feel, or do, in work, love and life.

How I help

I will support you to find insight into difficulties, find freedom from anxiety, build resilience to stress, change ways of behaving, heal from trauma and increase your overall well-being.

My specialism

I specialise in supporting adults who have experienced emotional or childhood trauma and want help resolving the negative impacts they may have been left with.

My clients usually find they have experienced narcissistic, selfish or emotionally abusive parenting, and reach out for help with (but not limited to):

  • Setting boundaries that meet their needs.
  • Feeling less guilty, sad, anxious or stressed. 
  • Diminishing self blame and self doubt.
  • Addressing self-destructive behaviours. 
  • Relentless critical thoughts.
  • Repressed emotions. 
  • Healing from history.

Does the saying “stop taking paracetamol for other people’s headaches”, resonate with you? 

How I work

I offer weekly sessions, for 50-minutes, via the online platform zoom for both UK and international clients. Sessions are held at the same time each week, with flexibility if needed. All paper work is completed electronically.

What happens next

If you're ready for change, and want to make a start, please contact me today with your enquiry.

I shall respond either to arrange an initial appointment or to discuss your enquiry further. I look forward to hearing from you.

There is no obligation to stay after the initial appointment.

Member organisations

BACP

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
