About me

I am a Psychotherapist and Supervisor with the BACP. I have ten years experience of counselling and clients presenting with a range of issues from stress, bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression to complex psychosocial issues such as PTSD.

My experience has been gained from a number of workplace settings, from a Hospice, in the community, in the voluntary sector and private practice. Also as a Youth  Counsellor. From my role as Clinical Lead of an abuse and trauma service, I have a caseload of service users with complex needs and supervise/mentor trainee therapists on placement. I am experienced in case evaluations, risk management and safeguarding.

I currently work as a Specialist Mental Health and learning Support Mentor at Universities. Alongside operating a small but professional private practice and take self-referrals as well as referrals from health professionals, EAP providers, occupational health and support charities. I offer therapy to Children age 4 to 16, adults in individual therapy and to couples.

I also offer clinical supervision currently to counsellors at a Children's Hospice and a Trauma service in the voluntary sector. I also offer personal therapy to other therapists and student counsellors. I am a registered member of the BACP and offer both short term and long term therapy.

I have a Master's degree in Counselling and Trauma from the University of Nottingham. I specialise in abuse and all types of trauma. My skills, expertise and knowledge focus on the promotion of health and wellbeing of my client whilst my compassion, vision and relentless enthusiasm focuses on their emotional and spiritual journey through the counselling process providing a truly holistic experience.

My approach to counselling is all about empowering people to make better life choices. I work with empathy & respect to improve self-awareness & self-responsibility. I offer long and short-term therapy

Most of us at some point in our lives will experience problems and difficulties that leave us feeling emotionally drained and in despair. At such times we may feel unable to cope and may need some extra support. This is very common, completely 'natural and human' and there is no shame in asking for help. In today's highly charged and stressful society, more and more of us are under pressure. People from all walks of life are seeking help in counselling and psychotherapy.

Life's journey can be difficult at times and we can experience many challenges along the way. As an experienced counsellor, I offer a safe and confidential space where we can work together to explore whatever is happening for you and find the best way forward. I am an integrative Psychotherapist, and work in a way that I tailor my approach to the individuals.
