I am a qualified therapist and run my practice from my home. Experience has taught me that life can become overwhelming and difficulties hard to manage and endure. Seeking to turn things around need not be done alone. I warmly offer you the opportunity to work with me in a secure and safe environment to help find the changes you desire. Having time and space for yourself with someone alongside to listen at depth and without judgement, can be a unique and valuable experience.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I bring together different therapeutic approaches so that I can work with you sensitively and in a way that is helpful to you. I embrace a sense of holistic wellbeing and the connection between mind and body. Sometimes we may work with your past to give an understanding of how past relationships are influencing the present and to calm the effects of old traumas. Understanding what happens in the room, and between us, can be a vital part of your therapeutic journey so that positive change is possible and is experienced.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
