About me

I have a very empathetic and warm personality to be able to help you connect and support you through the difficulties you may have. Whether you are struggling in your personal/professional relationships or whether you are feeling sad, stuck or finding it increasingly hard to make important life choices or perhaps experiencing symptoms of anxiety, low self esteem or depression, I provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space in which you can explore your difficult and painful issues. I will support you in growth, self acceptance and fuller self-expression.


Sometimes taking the first step to therapy can feel daunting - figuring out which therapist to work with can be confusing; the idea of sharing your thoughts and feelings with a stranger can be anxiety provoking which is understandable. To help you make a decision, I charge half my usual fee for the first meeting to support this process of finding the right therapist. During the first initial session, I may ask a few questions in order to get an understanding of how best we can move forward and work together and whether counselling would be helpful in bringing about positive change. We can decide together how many sessions are needed and to answer your questions about the counselling process.

Please email or call me to arrange an initial consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychotherapist and Counsellor with:

  • BSc. hons in Psychology and Counselling
  • MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Certificate in Bereavement Awareness Training
  • Diploma in Pastoral Care

I have experience of working with individuals and groups in a variety of settings including the charity ‘MIND’, the NHS Psychological Services and Cruse Bereavement.

Since I practice in a humanistic centred way, I believe that at the heart of everything is the encounter between two people. In addition, since my educational background is integrative, I understand that people are unique individuals with their own experiences and feelings. I therefore find it incredibly important not to adopt a 'one size fits all' approach.  Instead, I focus on tailoring the therapy according to the individual’s unique needs. Perhaps you need to focus more on childhood experiences and relationships. Or it may be that we need to be more mindful of the present moment and work in the here and now. Alternatively, you may find that you would prefer shorter-term therapy with a focus on exploring how to better manage your situations in the here and now. As your therapeutic journey develops, we will continue to review your feelings and changing needs.
