About me

I understand first hand that life can be tough, as we all face different challenges and experiences. Reaching out for support can be daunting but taking that step can lead to positive changes. 

As your therapist, you will be listened to in an impartial, non-judgemental, safe space. We can work through your concerns together at a pace you feel comfortable with and endeavour to achieve clarity and a better understanding of self. I will support you in every step of your counselling journey.

I offer face to face or online sessions, depending on what suits you best.

Get in touch for a free initial telephone consultation so that we can discuss what you would like to achieve out of counselling and how I can best support you. All thoughts and feelings are welcome.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified integrative counsellor, which means I draw from a variety of counselling theories and interventions to best suit you. This means I tailor make the sessions according to your needs.  I offer a warm and empathic approach in a confidential and comfortable counselling environment.  I have experience of working with adults and CYP (Children and young people) on a range of issues including anxiety, low mood, depression, low self confidence, low self esteem, relationship issues and bereavement. 

If you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, experiencing reoccurring thoughts and feelings that impacting the functioning of your every life and interactions or tired of overthinking, I would like to help you through a process of self awareness and change.  Your counselling journey can help you find the strength you require to create the changes you need to move forward to achieve a happier and fulfilling life.

No matter what your situation, remember you are not alone.  Reach out for support. Your mental health and wellbeing is important- you are important!
