About me


Because one size doesn’t fit all, one model or approach to counselling is not going to suit everyone. I provide an integrative approach that draws upon different models and techniques depending on each individual and your unique goals and needs.

It can be quite anxiety provoking coming to counselling, especially if this is your first time. I offer a free 30 minute consultation to anwser any questions you may have, this can be in person or over the phone giving you the opportunity to meet me and decide if counselling with me is for you, with no obligation to continue.

People come to counselling for many different reasons including stress, anxiety, depression, abuse, trauma or addiction to name a few. You may be looking to manage a particular problem, to gain self exploration or to achieve a better understanding of yourself and even others. Whether your reason for starting counselling is to be able to talk freely without fear of judgement, for support through a difficult time, to build confidence and self-esteem, or to achieve a more balanced you, we can achieve your goals together.

A little about me

I am a psychotrauma therapist specialising in traumatic experiences, post traumatic stress disorder and the many symptoms a person can be left with. I work intergrativey with training across a range of models and techniques, some being evidenced based and iclude Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic, Solution Focused, Trauma Focused  and Psychodynamic Theories. Together these allow me to provide the right form and style of counselling that suits you, either on a short or long term basis.
