About me

I believe that counselling can help us to gain a better understanding of ourselves and our feelings, as it can help us to work through some challenging issues and periods in our lives.

Counselling allows you to explore some of your innermost feelings and thoughts in a compassionate and empathic space, without judgement.

I trained in person-centred counselling, which means I work with my clients in a client-led and non-directive way. A counsellor is not there to give you the answers or tell you what to do, but to support you in exploring your feelings in more depth, to help you to find some clarity.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started my counselling journey whilst volunteering during my time at university between 2006-2009. During this time, I became a volunteer and sessional counsellor for Childline. Supporting young people at their most vulnerable points in their lives was a hugely valuable experience and it was this that led me to pursue a career in counselling.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2012 and I have since worked for Mind, for employee assistance programmes (EAP) and within my own private practice.
