My aim is to create the safe space that you need to explore your thoughts and feelings, without any fear or judgement. I would like to walk alongside you, as you begin to understand your pain (present and past) and discover new ways of navigating your world, and the different relationships/difficulties in your life.
We are all individuals, and we respond to life in different ways. This is why my practice is Integrative, meaning that I pull from a range of modalities to suit your specific therapeutic needs. I prefer working with the issues that you choose to present at your own pace, when you feel that you are ready to trust.
Having had a wide range of experience when it comes to anxiety and depression, I have been able to develop a better understanding and deep empathy towards the daily struggles of an individual who does not have the skills to cope and may be feeling hopeless.
I am open, warm and easy to talk to; and our relationship is very important to me. Confidentiality is treated as high priority in my practice. It is the trust within the therapeutic relationship that I enjoy the most.
We will have a 15-30 minute free consultation to get to know each other. This will also help to gauge where you are emotionally, your immediate requirements, and if we would make a good fit.
If we both agree to proceed, please expect sessions to be 50 minutes in duration.
I offer long and short term therapy.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
