About me

I have worked with many unique individuals and pride myself on an approach that caters towards their needs. Whether those needs are regarding your mental health, or just a greater sense of self, I welcome the opportunity to talk through whatever you bring into the therapeutic environment. I specialise in family issues, relationships, anxiety, LGBTQ+, ADHD and neurodivisity, and low self-esteem. 

My training has provided me with a strong foundation in the Person Centred Approach, however, I am also qualified in CBT if that is something you would prefer. I often take a more directive approach with the individuals I work with. 

Talking therapy is built on a strong foundation of trust and confidentiality, so I offer a space where there will be no judgement and you are safe to explore feelings and thoughts, whilst also gaining a greater understanding of self. 

Reaching out for any kind of support can be daunting, and I appreciate you taking the time to do this by reading through my profile. If there are any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
