About me

I was trained as an integrative therapist, which has enabled me to explore several different approaches to therapy.  During my time in practice, I have become aware that no single approach works for everyone. I, therefore, work alongside my clients in finding the best approach for them.

We all experience different kinds of challenges in life, and what may be difficult for one person, may not be to another. We must all learn not to judge our experiences by those of others. If you are struggling to manage emotions and thoughts, this is when therapy can help.

As an integrative therapist, I will work with you to explore the most effective way for you to engage in therapy.  Through gaining a new understanding of life's issues, this will lead to an increased sense of confidence, a greater sense of control in life, a restored sense of identity, and consequently a fuller, happier life.

Training, qualifications & experience


  • Diploma in Integrative Counselling
  • Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People
  • Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Children and Young People

    I have also a portfolio of workshops and additional short courses I have attended


For 8 years I have worked in a charity that offers counselling and advocacy services. For the last 5 of those years, I have been a manager within the organisation. I continue to do this role alongside private practice.
