About me

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of counselling and psychotherapy) with extensive experience of working with a wide range of issues including; anxiety, panic disorders, relationship issues, depression, addiction issues and past or present trauma.

Life at times, can feel overwhelmingly difficult to navigate. Whether this is due to a seemingly unmanageable reaction to a life event (past or present), or a general sense of anxiety and dissatisfaction, talking to someone outside of your friends and family circle who is trained and experienced can help you to make new choices and experience a different way of living that is more fulfilling and rewarding.

I offer a safe and confidential space where you can be supported to explore whatever is troubling you.

Finding a therapist can be a daunting task, with this in mind I offer a reduced fee initial session. In this session you will hopefully gain a sense of how I work and whether you consider it will be helpful for you. I belong to an extensive network of therapists and am always happy to discuss an onward referral.

Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have.
