About me

Are you feeling down, anxious or overwhelmed?

I work with people to help them transform anxiety, depression, trauma and low self-esteem, so they can be more happy and resilient, have better relationships, and live a life that's more in tune with what they want and who they are.

My approach is flexible and eclectic. Depending on your needs and wishes sessions could include, talk, art and creativity, movement, embodiment, mindfulness, and breath and voice-work. I also offer sessions walking in the open air if you would rather not be stuck inside.

My experience is that when we feel safe, accepted and allowed to be ourselves it is natural for us to start to orientate towards well-being, healing and growth. I offer a safe, respectful and non-judgmental space in which I can support you to explore, heal and grow as feels right to you.

I work with a wide range of clients and issues, and have a particular interest in high sensitivity (Highly Sensitive People/HSP), introverts and being happily introverted, shyness, confidence and low-self esteem.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in Emotional Therapeutic Counselling, and have also trained in body-based therapeutic approaches with the Brighton School of Embodied Therapy. I'm a qualified Alexander Technique teacher and am particularly interested in the role of the body in healing chronic anxiety, stress and overwhelm.

I am committed to practicing ethically and safely. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and have regular individual and peer supervision. I am fully insured and undertake continual professional and personal development.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

High Sensitivity/Highly Sensitive People (HSP)
INFP and INFJ personality types

Lack of confidence
Low self-esteem.

Walking and outdoor therapy. The rhythm of walking can help us to relax and organise our thoughts, and for some people may feel more natural and comfortable than traditional chair-based talk-therapy. I offer sessions walking or just being in nature for those who find this helpful.



I offer a free, no obligation, introductory session so that you can meet me and get a sense of whether you think we could work productively together.
