I am a registered BACP psychotherapist and have worked for several years in the NHS and charitable mental health services gaining experience across a diverse range of issues including substance use, anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, self-harm in addition to many more concerns. Deciding to engage with psychological therapies means finding the right therapist for you. I work in a practical and down to earth way that is geared towards helping you make the most out of therapy, at a pace that works best for you. Using a collaborative approach we will work together to explore and unravel the issues that are bringing concern to your life. I am here to listen, to be with, to empathise and to support you as best I can.
There are no expectations from me for how you should engage with therapy. What I aim to provide is a space that makes you feel comfortable and safe to express yourself. My doctoral training and clinical exposure has given me the skills and experience to practice across a wide range of evidence-based theories and techniques such as existential, psychodynamic and CBT therapies
Please get in touch to discuss your therapy needs.

Areas of counselling I deal with
It is best to contact me via email as I am not always available by phone. I will respond as soon as I can that day. I offer a free 15 minutes initial phone consultation. I am registered with the following insurance companies; AXA PPP, Cigna UK, WPA and Healix otherwise individual fees are £75 per session. I also have a limited number of reduced slots available at £60 for those on low income and students.
My research interests lie in gaining a better understanding of how the social and gendered expectations we face impact upon our ability to cope with life. Such pressures can prevent help-seeking behaviours and prevent us from getting the support we need. I have particular experience working with people who are hesitant with the concept of therapy that leaves them cautious to disclose their concerns with another individual. To help with this I aim to build strong working relationships that act as a key foundation to therapy.
