About me

I believe all difficulties we experience with regard to our mental health are episodes and not a way of life. I see my role as a counsellor being to help you to develop and build resilience, self-confidence and self-esteem, so you can master the art of living without living being a burden.

​​I use Person-Centered therapy techniques, as well as incorporate other approaches, such as hypnotherapy, CBT, mindfulness, and journaling, to ensure a truly tailored counselling experience for my client.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Chrysalis trained counsellor and have completed the AIM Awards Level 3 in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills, AIM Awards Level 4 Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and BA (Hons) in Childhood & Youth Studies. I have over 25 years’ experience of working with children 0-18 years, parents and adult individuals.
