About me


I work in central Cambridge and have been a counsellor since 2012.

I offer a welcoming, calm and confidential space where I hope you will feel at ease and have the freedom to talk about any aspect of yourself or your life experiences that is important to you.

The heart of my counselling practice is Person-centred and reflects the value I place on the uniqueness of individuals and the respect I have for their ability to know what is right for themselves.
Person-centred counselling is described as non-directive. This means that I do not guide our time together - you decide what it is you want to talk about and sessions will be taken at your pace.

If you want to know more about Person-centred counselling you can find a summary in the 'Getting Help' area on this site.

I also have an interest in the use of creative materials and mindfulness and offer this alongside my knowledge of other counselling approaches where it may be helpful.

Our relationship will be central to our time together. I offer my commitment to building a warm, accepting and collaborative partnership with you. My aim is to provide an environment in which you will be able to gain better understanding of yourself, connect with your own internal resources and clarify the beginnings of a way forward that feels right for you.

I have spent time with adults and young people from varied backgrounds and life circumstances who have engaged in counselling for a wide range of personal issues. I am able to offer short term or longer term counselling and this will be guided by your needs.

I have experience in the following areas: -

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Loss of confidence / low self esteem
  • Life crisis
  • Emotional, physical and sexual abuse
  • Anger
  • Transitions
  • Work related challenges
  • Creative/play therapies – working with children

My working history has given me the opportunity to meet adults and young people in a variety of environments including education and charity organisations. I have experience of working with survivors of domestic abuse and this is an area of interest for me. I currently spend part of my week working with a counselling charity in Suffolk.


I am passionate about what I do. Growing my knowledge and experience to support my work is important to me. I believe that counselling is a lifelong learning experience and I look to develop both personally and professionally on a continuing basis.

I am a registered member of the BACP and guided by their ethical framework.

Next steps…

If you feel comfortable with what you have read and want to get more of a sense of me and what I offer, please make contact, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. After this, if you feel you would like to meet me, we can arrange an initial session. There is no commitment to continue with sessions if you feel that it is not right for you.
All contact will be dealt with in confidence.

I offer one-to-one sessions with adults and young people (10 years and above).
