About me

Depression, anxiety, addictions, abuse, PTSD, bullying, self esteem, confidence issues, self harm or relationship issues. I can help and know that anyone can change their situation, gain insight into themselves and grow towards their potential, if they make the decision to do so.

Equine Psychotherapy is a lovely and often empowering alternative to room based therapies. Working in the fresh air, the horses offer support and can access deep emotional places in clients with their highly tuned non verbal communication. Horses can gently reflect back existing patterns in clients relationships and encourage healthier ways of being. Please watch the powerful videos at the bottom of the page.

I offer a safe and confidential space to begin to assess where you feel you are in your life, and how you wish to move forward.

With over 10 years experience of seeing and feeling the healing potential of a strong therapeutic relationship, I know it is possible for anyone. I draw on different models of therapy as an integrative counsellor, and continue to enhance my skills through reflective practice and attending experiential workshops.

I have experience of working in short term counselling and long term psychotherapy for local charities and the prison population. I also offer professional support to fellow practitioners.

I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society.
I am an Approved Supervisor by the National Counselling Society.
I am a LEAP registered Practitioner.
