About me

I am an experienced counsellor who is passionate about helping people. If you are suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, abuse/trauma or life's difficulties, it can be hard to navigate on your own. I understand it is quite daunting when sharing life situations with another person. It helps if you can feel safe and are able to build trust with your counsellor in a non judgemental environment, whilst moving towards a more fulfilling life. By offering a holistic and integrative approach to counselling, I use a variety of techniques and skills that can be tailored to suit YOU the client.

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with a 1st class B.A.(Hons) degree in Counselling. I have advanced training in Trauma Therapy which is particularly helpful in dealing with PTSD, phobias, or any emotional or psychological trauma. I also 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.
