About me

Sometimes, talking to friends, a partner, or other family members doesn't feel appropriate, helpful or enough.

If you are struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, relationship or work-related problems, I can help. By bringing a combination of counselling and coaching approaches to my practice, I am able to provide a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your experiences, feelings and thoughts and find a path towards living a happier, more fulfilled life.

I firmly believe that you are your own expert. Through a process of collaborative exploration, you will find your own solutions to whatever difficulties have brought you to seek help.   I bring warmth, professionalism and pragmatism to my work, with the primary aim of helping you to achieve the outcome you seek.

Being able to express yourself openly without fear of being judged can be a liberating and reparative experience, enabling you to move forward and feel strong again.

You may have specific goals you are seeking to achieve. I can work with you to develop self-understanding and to explore your options. Whilst acting as your sounding board, I will also ask questions aimed at helping you clarify your thinking, enabling you to progress with confidence and focus.

I have over 15 years combined counselling and coaching experience from working both in private practice and organisations.   I am professionally qualified and an accredited registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Prior to practising as a therapist, I held several board level positions as an HR professional in some of the most successful global technology companies.   I am currently completing a professional doctorate in psychotherapy with a research interest around enabling individuals to successfully combine family & professional roles.

Location: My practice is located in the heart of Salisbury - a stones throw from the Cathedral.

Contact: Feel free to call or email to arrange an initial session where we can explore what has brought you to seek support, and whether I am the right therapist for you.
