About me

Whatever has brought you here, I'm sorry that you are having difficulties, maybe I can be of help, so why not get in touch to see if I am the right counsellor for you? I am a caring, kind, and compassionate person who can offer you a safe, non-judgemental, and confidential space to explore your concerns. 

Together we will work using tools and techniques to support you to make changes. As we build a trusting, confidential and genuine relationship we will determine what your needs and goals are. We will agree on a flexible approach using psychotherapeutic counselling and or hypnotherapy, and maybe some coaching, taking one step at a time. 

I specialise in grief and loss, health, anxiety, and stress management, and can also support a wider range of issues or concerns. So, if you are feeling stuck, have fears or phobias, have experienced trauma, overwhelm or confusion, and you feel that now is the time to talk, then do get in touch. You will be met with warmth, empathy, and care. I will always be respectful to your beliefs, differences, and experiences. 

Training, qualifications & experience

During my training, I volunteered at a local hospice, where I gained experience in supporting people through their loss and grief. I have also worked with people who have a life limiting condition to help them to cope with their diagnosis and the impact that has on them and their loved ones.

Continuing in my private practice during the past 7 years I have worked with a range of people with a variety of presenting issues, such as phobias, anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, rape and sexual abuse, health anxiety and more.

My qualifications:

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling & Hypnotherapy.

A level 5 Coaching professional qualification.

CPD: Intro to PTSD and Trauma, Safeguarding, Rape & Sexual Abuse Counselling, Understanding ADHD and Anxiety Disorder, Working with Stuck and Resistant Clients, Treating Envy and Jealously

I am registered with the National Counselling Society and an affiliate counsellor with the Yorkshire Brain Tumour Charity. I also volunteer as a counsellor with the NHS.

I am also taking additional training to work with young people and have experience of working with people from the age of 12+.
