About me

I am an integrative therapist working collaboratively with clients to help them solve the issues they bring to counselling.

I have a private practice seeing couples, individuals and young people. I specialise in relationship therapy having trained with Relate and being a Relate Practitioner. I also specialise in working with young people having founded and led a counselling service in a mainstream senior academy for 9 years.

I am experienced in working with many different issues, including relationship issues, eating disorders, obesity, self-harming, depression/low mood, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, low self-esteem, substance abuse, sexual abuse, anger management and trauma. Presently, in addition to my private practice, I am counselling adult survivors of child sexual abuse.

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.
