About me

Welcome to my profile.

I am an experienced integrative counsellor and supervisor.

My integrative approach means I am not a pure one therapy fits all therapist but rather use different therapies that will benefit my client.
DBT, dialectical behaviour therapy, CBT, cognitive behavioural, and solution focused are just a few of the many therapies available, I’m happy to discuss this with you.

I have in-depth and wide-ranging experience of working with teenagers, adults, families, couples, and children. 

In addition to my ongoing practice I currently work in schools with students aged 5 to 18.

I have previously run Anger Management, Self-Esteem and Confidence Building courses for adults and adolescents.

I have worked for various counselling agencies such as the Atrium clinic, the NHS MIND, and RELATE

I support people with anxiety, depression, OCD, anger issues, low self worth, relationship issues as well as personality disorders. I am experienced in autistic based, ADHD and PDA needs.

So with the many therapists available why use me?

As an integrative counsellor I use a range of therapies specific to your needs, aiming to give you tools and life skills to help you manage and regulate your emotions.
I strive to provide a service that gives people a valued and safe space (physical or virtual) within which to explore, understand and gain valuable insights for their future.

I became a therapist over 20 years ago, a decision that remains one of the best that I have ever made. During this time I have helped people overcome many challenges, including, but not limited to: Anxiety, Panic, Depression, Domestic abuse, obsessions, bereavements and loss, Bullying, Anger, Low Self-Esteem, Lack of Confidence, and Difficulty in Communicating etc.

By investing time with me you will benefit from my experience. I will share all my learning with you, and provide you with life-long strategies you will always have.

Working Safely and Ethically together.

The Coronavirus Pandemic has impacted the lives of people across the country, with many people still feeling overwhelmed and trying to stay in control of their lives. My room is sanitised after each Client, with fresh air where possible. I am happy to wear a mask for the Clients safety if preferred. 

 I once again welcome people back into the quiet sanctuary of my dedicated counselling room. And I continue to provide my services online for those who would prefer to do so, as this new way of working has proven to work really 

Working in person traditionally has been the desired preference for many clients, however I have found working online is also a highly effective way to provide support to people across the whole of the UK and beyond. I have had the pleasure of working with clients in the USA and Australia, as well as many clients from Kent, London, and Manchester.

Here are the benefits of online therapy.

  • No travel required. This is great particularly if you are unable to get out. Easier if you do not drive, and if you do drive it saves on petrol, parking, and traffic worries.
  • Less of your time is required as you will not need to add on travel time, and in our busy life this can really help.
  • You can have your session in your own familiar environment, surrounded by your own comfort, which for some may feel a safer experience.
  • If you live in a remote area, seeing me online may much more convenient.
  • Mobility/disability can be a big issue for some people and if you cannot get to me in person, we can still work.
  • Less time getting to me may make your start calmer.
  • Working with the whole family has been easier online as often there can be difficulties with everyone's timing. Also different members can join us in different places.

Benefits of seeing me in person

  • You may feel getting out of your own home more confidential if you don’t live alone, and a different environment can feel refreshing.
  • Some people feel they can absorb the conversation easier in person, and feel as they are being listened too better.
  • We don’t need to worry about poor internet connection.
  • To put your mind at rest I take a test 2x per week and have had both jabs. If you do see me in person please test prior to seeing me.
