About me

I am a fully qualified, experienced Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with a 1st class B.A.(Hons) degree in Counselling, working from practises in Warwickshire and London. I also offer Telephone, Online and Skype/Zoom Counselling. I have advanced training in Trauma Therapy, which is particularly effective in dealing with PTSD and emotional and psychological trauma. If you are suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, abuse/trauma or life's difficulties, it can be hard to navigate on your own. Building trust in a safe environment is key to  successful counselling.  By offering a holistic and integrative approach, I use a variety of techniques and skills that can be tailored to suit YOU the client.

I use a combination of calming techniques and mindfulness to offer immediate relief for some of the distressing symptoms we may suffer as a result of life events.
In my capacity as a school counsellor I have 10 years experience, working with children and young people, dealing in particular with issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, low self- esteem, stress and eating disorders. I work closely with other agencies such as the child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) to support young people with more serious psychological difficulties.
Working in a hospice has enabled me to gain valuable knowledge in dealing with loss and bereavement, supporting relatives and families who have recently lost a loved one.
Whatever the issue, I believe counselling can help you gain more balance and happiness in your life.

If you would like to talk to me about how counselling can help you, please contact me on 07721 882498. Your initial telephone consultation is FREE.
As well as daytime appointments, I offer some evenings and weekends.
