About me

Seeking support can feel overwhelming. Not quite sure what it is you actually need? I can help.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP and Accredited Member NCS. I have been client-focused for over 12 years.

I can help you whether you need short term support with something you are going through now or to help understand what may be long term or historical issues you are ready to deal with.

There may be something bothering you - but friends and family are not the right people to talk to right now. I can help you with your perspective on situations, if that's what you need or just the opportunity to talk to someone who isn't emotionally attached.

As well as  room based therapy, I also offer walking/talking therapy. This may suit those who would rather not be in the confines of a counselling room as some may find this intimidating. This involves going out and walking through the session. Walking is proved to add to your personal well-being and naturally produces endorphins, which also trigger positive feelings in the body.

In my counselling I like to offer understanding. A safe space to freely share what you are comfortable sharing, with no judgement and confidentiality. I would hope to build a working relationship built on trust to help you change and manage your life differently.

I like to keep it simple, because life can be complicated enough.

If you feel talking to someone may just help, then please contact me to discuss your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a CPCAB Diploma in Counselling. I regularly update my skills by attending training days, in subjects such as, trauma, attachment and eating disorders.

I have specialised in addiction and family work, having delivered therapeutic programmes and written workshops. ​

I feel passionately about personal learning and growth. Through my work and training have recognised how important self care and self awareness is.

I have worked in welfare, prisons and for charities, building up a solid foundation in client work - first hand. I have also worked for over 2 years within an IAPT NHS setting, working with clients both short term  (6 weeks) to longer term (up to 20 weeks).
