About me

Hi, I'm a Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist with over fifteen years experience, currently working as a Senior Therapist within the NHS, alongside my private practice. My aim is to help make a positive difference to your life, whether with managing challenging times, facing a specific life event or through developing self-awareness. I value the importance of a warm, supportive and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship, through which it is possible to explore difficult emotions, experiences and patterns of behaviours to reach a deeper understanding and move forward with new possibilities.

As an Integrative Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist, I draw upon a variety of psychological approaches such as CBT, psychodynamic and person-centred theories. These are tailored to suit the individual needs of each client. My experience includes working with individuals and couples, with a range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and family issues.  I also have specialist experience within the perinatal period with pregnancy loss, birth trauma and postnatal depression. 


I value the importance of the therapeutic relationship to provide a safe space to explore together both past and present experiences and difficulties. It is through this exploration that it is possible for individuals to gain a greater understanding of themselves and then, together, find ways to move forward and bring about positive change. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries and to arrange a free initial consultation.
