About me

It can sometimes be difficult to say whats on your mind, being overwhelmed by thoughts and feelings, and most of us experience times in our lives when we feel low, worried or disheartened.

As a counsellor, I will accept you unconditionally and provide a warm, friendly and trusting environment in which to talk through the worries you may be facing. As every person is a unique individual, I personalise my therapy to suit you and your needs.

We all find phases in our lives when we need to reach out for extra support. I can offer you the opportunity to identify your own personal resources and capabilities, which are sometimes lost in times of confusion and anxiety. I will not make decisions for you or impose opinions, but I will respect your individual needs.

Throughout your time working with me, you will be encouraged, supported and empowered to look at yourself from a different perspective. My aim is not only to help you cope with a current issue or crisis, but to do so in a way that produces learning for the future, so that you can feel more in charge of your life.

I am experienced working with individuals, couples, adults and adolescents.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Member of the BACP
  • Advanced Diploma in Counselling
  • CBT, Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic, Person-Centred
  • Counselling Skills Certification
  • CBT with Depression Certification
  • Working with Self-Esteem Certification
  • Safeguarding

I qualified to become a counsellor after spending time raising my family, including my daughter who has Aspergers Syndrome, OCD and a variety of Depression and Anxiety issues. This was a key factor in my decision to become a counsellor, appreciating the difference that talking therapies can make on a persons life, however complex and hopeless it feels at the time.

I have counselled within a Doctors surgery, using cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic counselling and person centred techniques. I have also worked as a counsellor and pupil support worker in a Special Needs School for students with Social, Emotional and Behavioural difficulties.

I have experience in supporting transgender people through their transition process.
