About me

If you’ve arrived here, you're probably looking to make changes in your life. You may simply feel you can’t carry on as you are, or you may be curious to find out more about yourself. I hope I can help you with either.

DO ANY OF THESE SITUATIONS SOUND FAMILIAR?

You find yourself overwhelmed by unwelcome feelings such as anxiety, anger, sadness or loneliness

You feel stuck or unhappy in your relationship, or struggle with intimacy

You want to change your life, but keep repeating old patterns

Issues from your past are stopping you from living life to the full

You are struggling with a life transition, or a specific event such as a bereavement or relationship breakdown

IF SO, THERAPY CAN HELP YOU:

Feel more comfortable in your own skin, making choices for yourself rather than to keep others happy

Overcome the impact of a traumatic event

Feel more connected to other people, developing deeper relationships

Live in the present, rather than being burdened by thoughts of the past or the future

Overcome addictive behaviour

Find a new balance between different parts of your life, successfully navigating life transitions

Gain a greater understanding of who you are and what makes you tick

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.”
― Carl R. Rogers

I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.


Exploring the way you think and feel can develop your emotional intelligence and give you the knowledge to bring about the resolve you seek. I am an individual and a therapist that believes change is possible.
As a therapist, I offer understanding, clarity and empathy. Taking this first step can be empowering and may feel a bit scary at the same time, but the best results are achieved by talking it out, with the assurance of knowing that you will not be judged, but met with empathy and understanding.

We often find that we hold the answers inside ourselves, but sometimes a little help is needed to gain clarity. Sometimes, just one appointment can put you back on track, so I offer both short-term and long-term therapy, depending on your needs.


My approach is to treat each person as an individual. Everyone is treated with respect and discretion.
Working as an Integrated Counsellor I find sometimes life can be difficult and can leave us feeling stuck, lost, helpless or distressed. Counselling offers you a confidential place to explore issues and feelings without any pressure or judgement. In doing so it can help reduce confusion and encourage proactive change and to help you move forward.

“My job is to assist you in finding the answer that is right for you. Not the answer that would be right for me.”
― John Dolan, Everyone Burns

I am also a qualified Reiki Master Teacher trained by using the form of Usui Shiki Ryoho.
Reiki is simply as a relaxing therapy, some people have Reiki because they are stressed, anxious, in pain, or grieving, others need more balance, or clarity in life. Reiki is helpful for all – you don't need a reason to receive it.
I find that using both therapies work very well within the therapy process of releasing any stresses or worries.
