About me

We often tell our lives as stories in order to make meaning out of them. Sometimes our own story seems to disrupt due to an immediate crisis or issues to do with our past that cause us distress. Perhaps a combination of both. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and gentle space for you to tell your story. Together we can look at is causing you pain, where it’s roots may be and what impact it is having on your day-to-day life.

Often an overwhelming crisis can show us the way forward, though it seldom feels like that at the time. My training is as a Psychosynthesis Counsellor and this helps me to hold both your immediate issues as well what may be trying to emerge for you.

I believe that the relationship with your therapist is of vital importance, so after an initial session you will have a brief time to reflect on whether we could work together before making a decision to continue.

My areas of expertise are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Loss of purpose
  • Self-worth
  • Childhood trauma
  • Audition/Performance anxiety

Entering into therapy is not always easy but if you are considering it, especially for the first time, you are already looking further to your self-care.

In the words of Pierro Ferruci: ‘If you work on yourself, you are already participating in the extraordinary, ageless work of overcoming darkness and pain and the evocation of latent potential’

(What We May Be: Tarcher Penguin)

I have a background in both the theatre and teaching and have worked with individuals in the creative industries. In a voluntary capacity, I worked for many years supporting individuals in emotional crisis.
