About me

Life can feel tough at times. This can be for a wide variety of reasons and circumstances. I offer a space where you can explore what you are going through and why. As your counsellor, I want to provide a safe space for you, where we can look what is happening in your life, explore what might be the cause of your pain and what change might look like for you. 

Developing our relationship is central to the work we will do together, so you feel you can share with me what's on your mind. I am a person-centred therapist which means getting alongside you in a compassionate and non-judgemental way is key to how I work.

There is a lot of choice out there when it comes to therapists, so I offer a free 15 minute phone call where I can tell you more about how I practice and we can decide together if we are a good fit. I offer in-person and online sessions and I work with teenagers and adults. I am working with clients who have experienced trauma, are going through the process of grief and loss, difficult family issues, depression and anxiety. 

I hope you will find me an approachable and empathic practitioner, fully committed to helping you make informed decisions about how you want to live your life. I look forward to hearing from you.
