About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or down? Has your child become withdrawn, tearful or angry?

Are you having issues in your relationships, or perhaps you're just wondering how on earth it got to this?

These thoughts and feelings can be isolating and, when allowed to, can take over. But, by taking these initial steps you’ve already accepted that this is not who or where you want to be; this is not your forever.

I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Child / Adolescent therapist working within the  NHS and in Private Practice and will gently help you explore the issues that are important to you, together we will find the possibilites and help you move forward with your life.

It’s a daunting process I know but by seeking help you are showing strength of character and a desire to feel happier. Counselling can help you achieve this as it provides a safe place in which you can explore your personal thoughts and feelings in a confidential and supportive environment. Whether as a couple or an individual, a child or young person, this neutral space enables us to look at and work through the issues in a calmer, clearer way.

It can allow you the opportunity to air your views, and make the changes you feel would most benefit your life and your relationships.

There is no issue too big or too small.

So let’s look at this together.

Trained as an Integrative counsellor, with my roots firmly in the Person centred approach, I am able to draw from a number of approaches including CBT, Psychodynamic, Solution focused, Creative Art Therapy, Mindfulness and others. This basically means that the therapy is tailored to meet your needs.

I have a wealth of experience in working with:

  • Stress / Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Children & Teenagers
  • Low self esteem
  • Affairs & betrayals
  • Menopause
  • Grief
  • Abuse
