About me

At the heart of my work is the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship. My intention is to be alongside you as you draw on your inner strength, creativity and resilience in what can often be very challenging or traumatic life events. I know this on both a personal and professional level.

My original experience comes from my role as a practice counsellor in several G.P surgeries. I love my work and have been in practice since 2006. 

My approach to therapy is intuitive and creative, attending to what's happening for you right now, whilst giving respect and time to earlier experiences. Being committed to my own personal growth, I deeply believe that this way of being helps us understand ourselves better. Through therapy our lives and our relationships can be deeply enriched.I have a deep interest in vitality and finding our way back to our true selves.

I want to acknowledge the anxiety around deciding to ask for support. I know it can take courage to reach out for help. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need more information .
