Therapy with me...

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, trained in a variety of theories and techniques, including Transactional Analysis, Person-Centered Therapy, Gestalt and I also enjoy using creative interventions, when appropriate. I can also offer a Life Coaching service, where we explore your day-to-day struggles and develop practical solutions to help.

I work holistically and integratively, combining tools from many different approaches to help you form a better understanding of yourself and your struggles, and to also develop a “coping toolkit” with practical strategies that you can use when hard times hit, or when you feel you need some grounding.

As your therapist, I'll be right there beside you, guiding you on your way, listening carefully & putting myself in your shoes, so I can truly understand your story on a deep level. In a safe & non-judgemental space we will explore your thoughts, feelings & experiences, celebrate your triumphs & lean in to understand your pain.


I have a wealth of clinical experience, having worked for a number of years in private practice, for mental health charities and in NHS primary care services.

Since qualifying, I have offered both short and long term counselling to clients who have faced a variety of issues, such as depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement and loss. I have also worked with clients who have struggled with suicidal thoughts, self-esteem issues and more. I also have particular experience of working with adults who have children or family members who have illnesses, learning difficulties and autism.

As well as my qualification in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, I also have an undergraduate degree in BSc (Hons) Psychology and I am a registered member of the BACP.
