About me

I specialise in the area of feeling 'overwhelmed', this could be the tension between how you physically feel and what your mind tells you to feel.  You may be feeling lost and wanting to 'be you' again.  Lack of concentration, distance from family and friends, worry, anxiety or even the feeling of being trapped, may be impacting your life.  I work with you to define healthy boundaries and create space where you can feel more yourself.  Do you find your self worrying about:

  -Where has my energy gone?

-How can I feel calmer?

-How do I get rid of negativity thoughts?

-How do I cope?

My experience of working with depression, bereavement, chronic pain, anxiety,  and psychological neglect, enables me to support your needs. You matter, so let’s start with 'Take care of you'.

I can help you take the lead in your life; understand yourself more, the impact past relationships have had on your adult life and what hurts, what is still raw and what you have avoided for too long. Working together in collaboration with the tools of resiliency, counselling and psychotherapy can enable you to reduce confusion, hurt and anxiety.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
