About me

Welcome to the beautiful, but perhaps scary journey of counselling. I truly believe this experience will positively impact you and your life, resulting in a happier, more content you.

Whilst you are searching for a counsellor, it can feel rather overwhelming, you may experience a variety of emotions. I would like to reassure you, within my practice, I will ensure you feel supported and safe, within a non-judgemental environment.

I am passionate about creating a space for you to feel comfortable and safe to express and explore everything and anything that you feel appropriate, with no pressure or expectations. People attend counselling for a variety of reasons, whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, family issues, stress, trauma, something else entirely or maybe you are actually not quite sure. I am here to help and to work alongside you to find a solution together. 

My aim is to help you to reach your highest potential, to feel content and fulfilled within every element of your life, whatever this may look like to you. Whether this means looking back, focusing on the here and now, looking at the future or perhaps a mixture of it all, we can explore this together to reach your goals.

As a pluralistic therapist, I am able to offer a variety of different theory models, meaning I will ensure you are at the heart of the therapy and will work in a way that is flexible to what you need, at every stage throughout your journey.

I can offer my services either face to face, via video call or via phone call. This can be changed throughout your journey, to be flexible around your needs. 

Whether you choose myself or a colleague within the counselling field, I would like to wish you all the best on this journey. 

If you wish to book in your first session or discuss anything further, please feel free to contact me by using any of the contact details provided.
