About me

Looking for a therapist can be a big step. Lots to understand and navigate. Making the decision to seek therapy is the first step to making positive change, and finding the right therapist for you is an important one. I offer a confidential and safe space to gently explore what brings you to therapy. My approach is humanistic. Simply put, I believe that when given the right environment, we as human beings have the desire and capabilities to live more balanced and meaningful lives. We just need to find the right person to support our journey.

I specialise in helping individuals navigate feelings of anxiety, low mood, and relationship difficulties. I support my clients in finding their balance again. With a compassionate and professional approach, I provide tailored counselling to support your mental health journey. My approach is down-to-earth and personable.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified with an advanced diploma in Person centred counselling (PCT) and have found that working predominantly as a PCT therapist, with aspects of other approaches within my practice has enabled me to offer a more varied and flexible approach to my therapy. I often include aspects of transactional analysis and elements of CBT where I feel that it would benefit my clients. Having the time and space within counselling to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment is often the first step in making positive change in someone’s life. Our problems can sometimes feel too big or heavy to carry ourselves. Often it’s hard to pinpoint what’s actually wrong, but that low mood, or anxious knot just won’t go away. Counselling will help you understand your behaviours and emotions that little bit better and give you insight into why you may be finding things difficult. With this understanding, it is often the catalyst for positive change leading to a more balanced and healthy future.

Alongside my private practice, I am a lecturer, teaching counselling skills. I am also a qualified clinical supervisor, supporting other therapists with their work.

What happens in the assessment session?

I understand that taking that first step to seek support via counselling, is a big step. This session is an introduction, and a chance for you to outline what has led you to seek counselling at this time. It is also an opportunity for me to explain what I can offer and cover aspects such as, my approach, cost, confidentiality, duration of sessions and my cancellation policy. I believe that it is only upon meeting with a counsellor, that you can truly get an understanding if you will feel happy and assured enough to work with that therapist. It is also an opportunity for me to determine if I am the right counsellor for you. If I feel that another service or counsellor would be a better suit for you, I will endeavour to sign post you to the right person or service. The initial assessment session is 45 minutes long and is £20
