About me

I specialise in working with people who are struggling to connect in their relationships.

Do you feel misunderstood, invisible, not valued, or unlovable? Are there things in your life that have affected the way you see yourself or how you act with others? Do you find communicating with a partner, friends, family, or colleagues challenging?

1 in 4 of us will struggle with their mental health and well-being every year, particularly with anxiety, self-confidence, relationship challenges and low mood. I can offer you a unique space where there is the freedom and the support to really look at and understand what’s going on for you. Here, there is no judgement, you will receive care, kindness and a genuine commitment from me to support you in a positive way with your well-being. It is important to me that we find a way of working together that feels right for you, one that you feel comfortable with. The foundation of my practice is a person-centred approach, as valuing and understanding you and your experience is really important to me as well as to the therapeutic process. I work in an open, honest and reflective way where we will explore what has happened during your life that may be getting in the way of your sense of self-worth or ability to build fulfilling, healthy relationships.

If you feel my approach may work for you please get in touch for a free 15 minute call to explore how we might work together. It would be a privilege to work alongside you and be a part of your journey.

Training, qualifications & experience

I initially entered the world of counselling working as a support worker for Child Bereavement UK. During my time volunteering for the charity I was a befriender for young people who had lost a sibling. Later I trained to become a support worker for group sessions and would work with children over a course of workshops who had lost a parent or sibling.

From January 2018 I worked as a Counsellor in a Grammar School. My primary focus was working with the Sixth Form Students around exam stress and social anxiety. I also had the opportunity to work with students aged between 11-15 years experiencing emotional difficulties around family breakups, bereavement, self harm and anxiety. I really enjoy working with young people and am able to offer creative ways to work when talking was a challenge or became too much.

Wanting to expand my experience I moved to working with adult clients at Mind in Aylesbury. This work has been rich and varied including working with addiction, carers and elderly clients experiencing loneliness and isolation. Anxiety and depression are often primary presenting issues but through our work we are able to identify other events in life that have triggered or continued the difficult emotions and feelings that are creating imbalance in their everyday life.

In 2019 I launched my Private Practice and extended my service to working with veterans & their families who are experiencing PTSD and relationship difficulties. I now specialise in working with Trauma and Relationship issues.

I have the upmost respect for all my clients and the courage they show to turn up and face their fears. I am very passionate and committed to my work and feel inspired when I see and hear the positive changes and progress my clients make and feel during the course of their counselling.
