About me

It can be difficult to see the world clearly when you're in an unhealthy relationship; it's easy to doubt your own feelings and judgement and find it impossible to create boundaries and stick to them.

I'm an experienced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working with adults who are experiencing issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse (past or present), feelings of worthlessness, PTSD, complex PTSD, anger issues and loss of self-esteem and confidence.

Some clients talk about not knowing who they are anymore and wondering how they came to be where they are in life with no idea how to get out of their situation. 

As a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional my focus is on you and your lived-experience as a human being; your thoughts, emotions and physical feelings. I will work with you to rebuild your resilience, self-confidence and ability to shape your life and future. Together we will create a "toolkit" to enable you to deal with whatever life throws at you - you do have the power to change your life and I will help you achieve this. 

It can take several years for someone who has experienced abuse as a child to reach out for healing - It takes courage. I will believe you, listen to you and work with you at your own pace with empathy and respect within a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment. I will help you to regain control of your life. We can't change what has happened to us in the past but we can change our attitude to how we see it and how we approach the future. 

It was because of my own experience of abuse that I sought help from a therapist and it not only changed my life but it's why I re-trained and changed career. (My former career was as a healthcare professional). 

My approach to therapy comes from a holistic perspective with the aim of raising self-awareness leading to self-knowledge and a deeper understanding of ourselves as human beings. 

It is a privilege to work with people like yourself and to "walk beside you" on your journey to find your way to a bright, fulfilling and meaningful future. 

Client Testimonial

" I felt immediately comforted by Poppi’s energy and felt like I could trust her straight away when talking about very difficult topics. Poppi is very present in the sessions and will often pick up on small details from previous sessions which made me feel very heard and something I really appreciated. Her holistic approach was completely new to me and, whilst it helped me to process my main problems, I genuinely believe I will be using these skills and ways of thinking for the rest of my life for (probably) all aspects of my life. Poppi is very authentic and I don’t feel like I am a subject or client, I feel like I am talking to a non-judging, neutral, listening ear who will pick up on her own energy and mine when discussing different things. This can be extremely validating for someone who has never felt very validated. From Poppi I have learnt about trusting your gut, checking in on yourself, grounding techniques and being ok with setting boundaries to name a few tools. Poppi has changed my life and I feel incredibly lucky that our paths met and only wish that others can find her as I did. Thank you for everything Poppi, RR"
