About me

You may feel unsure where to turn when you find yourself facing personal difficulties, whether you're struggling with a particular issue or simply wish to explore and better understand yourself. I work with adult clients dealing with depression, situational or generalised anxiety disorder, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, loss, trauma, existential crisis and identity, and relationship problems. I have a particular interest in working with young adults who are facing such difficulties, and people struggling with life transitions (e.g. starting or leaving university, beginning a career, navigating new or changing relationships).

I offer short term and long term counselling, depending on your circumstances. You may feel that six to twelve sessions will give you sufficient space to explore a particular issue that's been on your mind, or perhaps you are interested in longer term psychotherapy for a more in-depth experience of self discovery.

Beginning your journey into counselling can feel uncertain. I provide a warm, welcoming and confidential space to explore what feels important to you at your own pace. Our work will include reflecting on your past and present experience, and central to my way of working is forming a relationship within which you can feel truly heard and understood.
