About me

Life is full of experiences which can cause us to struggle, feel unsettled, overwhelmed and at odds with our true self.  When we feel like this, taking the time to reflect upon our experiences, feelings and emotional responses in therapy can help understand more about ourselves and then develop a way forward that is true to our own needs, aims and desires for the life we wish to live. 

I am a highly qualified Person-centred Psychotherapist (MSc) accredited with the UKCP.  I have extensive therapeutic experience supporting people in 1:1 therapy sessions with a variety of needs and experiences e.g the individual process of trauma, grief, depression and anxiety.  

I would like to offer you a compassionate, empathic, non-judgemental online safe space for you to talk about your experiences. At your own pace, we can spend time together exploring and reflecting upon your thoughts and feelings with the aim of looking after your emotional well-being to motivate change and growth. Our online therapy sessions can develop a further understanding of who you are as a whole person so you feel more connected to the needs of your true self.

I provide online 60min therapy sessions via Zoom at a regular time to suit. Due to the nature of online sessions, I can offer flexible daytime and evening appointments to suit your needs and location - this has proved particularly helpful if you work shifts or you are a British national living in Europe.

Please do contact me via telephone or email to arrange a free informal 15 min telephone conversation to talk about your needs for therapy and if I can help you with your concerns.
