About me

Seeking therapy and searching for a counsellor can be daunting process. It takes great strength and courage to take this first step and to ask for help, you may be feeling uncertain and vulnerable so finding the right counsellor is important.

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (MNCS), I practice in accordance with their ethical frameworks to provide a confidential, safe and professional counselling service for adults, children and adolescents.


I offer a warm, empathic and non-judgemental approach where you can feel listened to, and valued, creating a safe and confidential space for you to express, explore, understand and work through any thoughts, feelings or behaviours that are causing difficulties, however big or small.


My integrative approach is underpinned by my person-centred core training, which allows me to call upon a range of approaches and techniques to best suit you and your situation, working with you in a way that values you as a unique being, to support you and to help you find your way forward.


I work with all ages supporting a wide range of mental health issues which include but are not limited to anxiety, depression, low mood, low self-esteem, grief and trauma in both the short and long term


I offer a free initial consultation session that will give you the opportunity to discuss your needs, to see how counselling may help you and most importantly to see if we can work together.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.

Due to Covid restrictions I currently only offer online or telephone counselling but hopefully soon this will change and I will be able to offer face to face sessions again, I am based just a few minutes from the city of Wells and have parking.
