About me

I offer a professional, warm, empathic counselling service for adults and young people, aiming to provide you with the support and help that you need. I will help you feel safe and able to share as we sensitively explore what you want to, at a pace that you are comfortable with.

If appropriate, I may introduce therapeutic psychological tools or counselling methods to help you. I may also incorporate aspects of mindfulness or other grounding methods for clients experiencing overwhelming stress or severe anxiety. In particular, I work with anxiety, depression, historical abuse and trauma.

Often, getting help can feel like the hardest step of all, which takes courage and strength - it starts with hope; hope for understanding, hope for acceptance, hope for change, or hope for peace. Talk to me in a confidential and safe environment; I will work with you to find acceptance, peace, resolution, change - your solution that fits your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Forensic Psychology and a Diploma in Counselling.

My continuing professional development includes various courses and training so that I am up-to-date with current practices and able to offer a range of therapeutic approaches which can be tailored to suit your needs.
