About me


I am a Relate & NHS trained, fully qualified Counsellor specialising in Couples and Relationship Counselling.

I have helped all sorts of people in all sorts of situations. I can support you whether you’re in a new relationship, in a long-term relationship, or not in a relationship at all. I can support you through major relationship crises to smaller issues that are perhaps making you unhappy.

Alongside my own private practice, I have practised at the NHS for 6 years. Here, I worked in primary care as an individual, couple and psychosexual therapist dealing with relationship issues, affairs & betrayals, separation & divorce, sexual problems, family issues, sexual abuse, infertility, menopause & peri-menopause, hormones, depression, anxiety, gender issues, self-esteem, stress, bereavement and anger issues to name a few. I previously worked at Relate for 6 years, counselling couples and young people.

I have worked within the LGBTI community, Transgender, Gender Dysphoria and clients who are exploring gender identity issues - helping clients who are struggling to make a decision about their future. I passionately believe that every human being has a right to feel fulfilled. I also offer counselling support to partners and parents of individuals and couples questioning or affirming their gender and sexuality.

I work with my clients to develop their understanding of themselves and others and give them tools to make the changes they want in their lives.
