About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist dedicated to supporting you in managing stress, anxiety, depression, and navigating complex life transitions.

Together, we will make space for you to express your concerns fully, without judgment. My therapeutic approach is grounded in empathy, recognising mental health challenges as natural responses to life experiences. Sessions provide a compassionate and non-judgmental environment for gaining insights and overcoming internal barriers.

Inclusivity is a fundamental aspect of my practice, acknowledging and addressing the unique difficulties faced by marginalized communities. Regardless of your age (18+), ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, or disability, you are warmly welcomed here.

Choosing a therapist is a crucial decision. I aim to be someone you trust, ensuring you feel heard and offering the expertise to guide you through challenging circumstances.

If you’re ready to take the next step, contact me to book an initial 20-minute video consultation. Let's discuss what brought you to therapy and how I can assist you.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I specialise in assisting individuals through the intricate emotional landscape of perimenopause and menopause. This transitional phase often bring about intense, unaddressed emotions, significantly affecting personal well-being, relationships, career, and identity. Through psychotherapy, I provide a compassionate and empathetic space for exploring the psychological and physical aspects of hormonal changes during menopause.

Whether you're seeking support for emotional well-being during perimenopause and menopause or are looking for CBT-based interventions, I am here to assist you.
