About me

I am delighted to join the Counselling Directory and have the opportunity for us to connect.

I am a Counsellor trained in the Psychodynamic modality; although after working in different settings such as LGBT Foundation and 42nd Street (Manchester), I believe that my whole approach has been enhanced by my contact with other professionals practising through other modalities. Below is a link to some information about the modality I use.


The Psychodynamic approach allows me to work with all sorts of difficulties you may be encountering; some of the themes I work with in my practice are:

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Loss & Grief
  • Creative blocks
  • LGBTQ+
  • Identity related
  • Sexuality
  • Trauma
  • Digital Dependency

But independent from the modality I use, the operating belief in my practice is that I respect your pace, attentively & compassionately listen to you, give you space to explore your challenges & difficulties safely, help you to develop techniques that work for you (based on gained awareness of yourself) and assist you with creating choices that are ultimately aligned with the authentic YOU.

The first step is often the most difficult, but if you contact me, together we can understand your needs.
