About me

Whether you want to let go of your past or piece together your future - attending therapy, that is non-judgemental, will allow you to explore your thoughts and give you a chance to hear yourself say them out loud. Within a safe therapeutic environment you will learn how to build the confidence to express yourself and empower yourself to make positive change possible.

I have strong moral values and an altruistic attitude. I am a respected and valued professional. I am a committed and skilled individual that brings a sharp mind and caring attitude to the profession. I am a reflective therapist and I place each individual at the core of my process.

My therapy services address Eating Disorders, Life Coaching, Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Self-esteem, Perfectionism, Motivation for Change, Addiction and Problems with Drugs and Alcohol. Therapy can also help those that need a boost during a period of change to help them develop professionally or personally. Information, support and advice sessions can be arranged for parents who would like some guidance around helping their children cope or overcome their issues.

If you want to ask any questions and have a 30 minute conversation call 07513759741 or any further enquiries can be sent to

Training, qualifications & experience

BACP Registered Counsellor
FDAP Accredited Counsellor

MANTRA - King's College London

CBT-E (enhance for Eating Disorders) Oxford University

BSc (Hons) Addictions Counselling
Masters Certificate in Childhood Eating Disorders and Obesity

I run my own well-being business which offers professional therapy services alongside nutritional advice. I believe that a combined effort to take care of one’s mental well-being and physical well-being is essential to living a balanced lifestyle.

I am an experienced therapist and hold my own professional indemnity insurance. My range of therapeutic services are offered in, and around, Bournemouth and Southampton.

Over the past nine years, I have worked in the public sector exploring health and illness in society and learned about social influence on human health. I am an experienced counsellor and have spent the last five years working in the field of addiction.

Through out my career I have worked with young children who were picky eaters, adolescents and adults with eating disorders, as well as elderly people. Becoming more experienced in the field, my interests directed me into expanding my therapeutic capacity into both a nutritionist and a counsellor.

I have worked in international treatment centres inside and outside of the UK where I was able to gain experience with both adults and young people with a variety of process addictions and mental health issues. I have worked as a therapist with children, young people and adults in different local charities helping those suffering with drug and alcohol addiction. In recent years I have worked within a private healthcare hospital setting offering therapy to adults experiencing difficulties with anorexia nervosa, binge eating and bulimia nervosa. I have also worked on an CAMHS inpatient unit using CBT and psychotherapy.

My most recent training has been with CBT-E which is the enhanced version of cognitive behavioural therapy which has been adapted for individuals with eating disorders. This choice of treatment can be intensive and requires commitment which is why online therapy is a good option to offer flexibility. Treatment starts intensively and then slows down towards the end of treatment. The treatment can also be complimented by focusing on self-esteem, perfectionism and interpersonal problems. Other therapeutic alternatives to CBT-E can include MANTRA.

I am an accredited member of the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) and a registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means that I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling.

I invest in my professional development and have received the following qualifications:

MSc Psychology - University of Bristol (current); MANTRA through King's College London; CBT-E (Eating Disorders) through CREDO (current); Prevent Training 2016; Abuse within Teenage Relationships Training 2016; Common Assessment Framework (CAF) 2016; Child Sexual Exploitation Level 3 2015; Domestic Violence Level 1; Risk Management 2015; Information Governance 2015; Challenging Behaviour 2015; Safeguarding Adults Awareness 2014; Mental Capacity Act, The Legislation 2014; The Legal Highs Phenomenon 2014; Recording Skills and Report Writing Adult Services 2013; Safeguarding Children Level 3 2013; Health and Safety 2013; Childhood Eating Disorders and Obesity 2011; Emotional Freedom Technique Level 1 2011.
