About me

I have a private practice seeing couples, individuals and young people. I specialise in working with young people as I have practiced for many years as a lead school counsellor in a mainstream senior academy and in other settings. I also specialise in relationship therapy having trained with Relate and being a Relate Practitioner.

I am experienced in working with many different issues, including relationship issues, eating disorders, obesity, self-harming, depression/low mood, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, substance abuse and anger management.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to the BACP professional code of ethics and practice. My work is supervised and I am fully insured.
