About me

Are you suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, feeling generally low, or facing challenges that are preventing you from moving forward and leading a full and happy life? At times life can be very difficult leaving you feeling confused, unhappy, unheard, and restricting you from leading the life you want.

Counselling can be the first step towards change, regaining a sense of control in your life, and a better, more positive future for you.

I am a trauma-informed psychotherapist, I work around a wide variety of issues, problems and complex situations providing you with support, empathy and a space for you to share your concerns.

I can help you explore your thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours and assist you in gaining a better understanding and awareness of yourself and your relationships.

As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, I will help facilitate this journey in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment, allowing you to reflect upon what is happening for you and find a way forward.

My approach is integrative, which means I use techniques tailored to suit your specific needs and requirements, as each client is very much an individual and no one approach fits all.

I am a registered member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society,  I adhere to the association's Code of Ethics and have regular supervision to ensure I work in the best interest of my clients.

As part of my continuing professional development, I regularly attend training courses and workshops to further enrich, develop and enhance my work.

I hold full professional indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS certificate.

I provide both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy depending on your needs, this can be discussed during our initial consultation and assessment.

My private practice in Deeping St.James is within easy reach of Market Deeping, Bourne, Stamford, Spalding, Peterborough and the surrounding areas.

Free parking is available.
