About me

As an experienced counsellor working with adults and young people, I offer a non-judgemental, confidential place for you to explore the issues or problems you are struggling with or which are worrying you. I will help you find a way forward that is right for you. Perhaps you are suffering with feelings of depression, a sense of sadness or anxiety and panic attacks; confused or unhappy about relationships or family issues; struggling with life-cycle changes, lack of confidence or anger; whatever your problem counselling can help you find a way to make sense of what is troubling you and give you the opportunity to work towards developing a more fulfilling and rewarding life, by gaining personal insight and a renewed sense of energy and optimism.

I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and practice in accordance with their ethical framework for good, sound practice. I am DBS checked (formally CRB) and keep my child protection and safeguarding training up to date.

My approach is gentle, supportive and respectful, working from a humanistic perspective with adults and young people providing short-term and longer term help. I am passionate about my work and understand that taking the first step in acknowledging that you need help can feel daunting. Counselling will give you the space to share your problems and what it feels like for you.

In addition to my private practice, I currently work as a school counsellor in a number of secondary schools and at a GP surgery.  I previously worked for a university student counselling service and for a charity counselling families, children and adolescents.
