About me

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed; life can be tough and can throw challenges our way. I recognise that during times like these it can all seem too much and we can struggle to find a way through our own difficulties.

Providing a warm, open and down to earth approach, our sessions will allow you to deeply reflect on your thoughts, feelings and emotions, enabling you to achieve a sense of understanding which will allow you to find a way to move forwards and to lead a more fulfilled and empowered life.

I work in a Person-Centred way which means the counselling I offer is non-directive. Our sessions will be led by you, and we will work together at a pace that suits you. I will listen to you attentively, and will work with you genuinely and respectfully to understand and accept your experience. I will offer a safe, non-judgemental environment which will enable you to reflect upon your issues, discover your inner strengths, and find the resources to change. For Young People, I offer a creative approach; offering talking therapy and a variety of creative mediums to facilitate the exploration of self-expression.

My therapeutic training is underpinned by my degree in Psychology, which provides me with a deep and unique understanding of psychological processes, helping me to further understand the hurdles that life can throw at us and how they affect our wellbeing.

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This membership means that I am fully committed to ensuring the best professional practice, guided by the BACP ethical framework. What this means for you is that I am a caring and understanding practitioner offering high professional standards.

My particular specialism is working with survivors of trauma and young people aged 14+, however I have experience of working with a variety of issues, including, but not limited to: anxiety, depression, family issues, low self-esteem, eating disorders, anger, self-harm, stress, relationship issues, domestic violence and suicidal thoughts.
