About me

Are you finding your life or your relationships a struggle? Whether something has recently happened, or if you have been feeling low for a long time, then a talking therapy, such as counselling can really help. 

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor who has helped many people with a wide range of difficulties. I offer a warm, professional and supportive style, enabling you to explore your difficulties without feeling judged and in a space where you can feel valued.

Individual Counselling
As your counsellor I will really listen to you to understand your difficulties and support you to think about how things could be different for you.

I feel passionate about the benefits of counselling and have over 10 years experience in helping people with a range of difficulties including:

  • Anxiety
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Feelings of panic
  • Feeling sad
  • Low Mood
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low self-confidence
  • Feelings of worthlessness or emptiness
  • Anger management
  • Bereavement
  • Stress
  • Eating disorders
  • Relationship issues
  • Bullying
  • Trauma
  • Suicidal feelings

Typically individual counselling is arranged for weekly sessions, however depending on circumstances I can offer flexibility to accommodate your individual needs. I offer both short-term counselling and a longer term open-ended approach.

Couples Counselling
Couples counselling can be helpful to identify and talk through the difficulties you are facing in your relationship. Having time together with a professional counsellor to support you can help you to work through your difficulties, help you to find solutions and find a way forward.

Couples counselling can be arranged for weekly or fortnightly sessions. Typically couples come to counselling for between 6 to 10 sessions depending on individual circumstances.

Training, qualifications & experience

As an experienced counsellor I can offer you a safe, confidential space where we can look at and make sense of whatever is troubling you.

I have been running my private practice since 2011 and have seen many different people of all ages.

Since my initial training I have gained other counselling experience by working in a number of different settings including; providing counselling in a busy doctors practice one day a week for over 5 years, counselling at Listening Post and providing bereavement support through Cruse Bereavement Care.

  • WPF Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (2009)
  • Accredited member of BACP (2011)
  • Post diploma training in Solution Focused Short Term Therapy
  • Post diploma training in Couples Counselling
  • Certificate in Bereavement Care
