About me

Are you struggling with never feeling good enough, no matter what you do? With social media & our constant connection 24/7 it’s easy to get sucked into comparing ourselves to others, making us feel increasingly anxious & not enough.

Do you find yourself trying to change who you are to fit in with the crowd? Maybe you're unsure of who you even are anymore...? You know you’re feeling unhappy & insecure but you don’t have a safe place to share these feelings. I know that you want some answers, you want to understand yourself better, to feel lighter & be able to move forwards, but the hardest thing is knowing where to begin..

I work collaboratively with you to support your emotional wellbeing, helping you develop skills in self-care & to foster a deeper understanding of yourself. I listen to your story, then I help you to reflect & gain insight, together we find ways of retelling this narrative that gives new awareness and perspectives helping you to feel calmer & happier.

In a session with me you are allowed to be completely yourself and express to me whatever is on your mind. I will help you to explore your emotions and have an opportunity to look at things from a different perspective, and to not feel alone. I will be authentic with you in a session and allow myself to be human, and I hope that this will help you to be yourself with me also.

​​​I believe that we all hold our own truth and answers within and that we all deserve the space and support needed to understand ourselves better and to overcome our insecurities. I believe that with the right nurturing and safe environment we can heal from hurt, grow and develop into the best versions of ourselves.

I run an online & remote practice working with clients all over the UK, working via webcam and via email.

I am particularly passionate about helping millennials and young people with the struggles that they face, using my experience as a millennial to inform my understanding.

I offer one-on-one therapy via Microsoft Teams so that you can access therapy from the comfort of your own home, wherever you are in the world. This means that the therapy I offer is tailored to you, to fit around your life, to make it easy to prioritise your emotional wellbeing amid what is undoubtedly a hectic schedule.

I would love to work with you to improve your self esteem and help you to feel good enough, either via webcam or email. I offer a free 15-20 minute consultation via Teams/Zoom so that you can see if I am right therapist for you & for you to ask me any questions you may have.

Registered Member of BACP (MBACP)

The way I work is integrative, which means I blend many psychological theories together in a unique way for each client. I listen to your story, then I help you to understand your story and together we find a way of retelling your story that gives different insights and perspectives. We won't solely focus on the difficult experiences you've been through, it is important that we process these and then find hope and a way to move forwards. My core approach is the person centred model, but I integrate aspects of humanistic, existential, psychodynamic and narrative therapy as and when they are needed in the process.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
