about me



I believe that in providing a confidential, comfortable, respectful talking and listening space we can work together on things that may be troubling you, things you may be wondering about, things that are painful or keeping you stuck where you are. I can support you and we can discuss approaches and possible changes and notice together the progress you make.

I have a private therapy practice but have also counselled in a service taking NHS referrals for complex issues, in a bereavement counselling service and am an associate of services which provide workplace counselling for their employees in challenging circumstances either at home or in the workplace. I am well qualified and maintain up to date training: please see list below.

Before retraining as a therapist I worked to support people experiencing a very stressful set of circumstances; this experience led me to see how valuable counselling can be as a vital outlet, giving people hope and choices so that circumstances are much less likely to be repeated.

Who do I work with?

Individuals and couples wishing to understand themselves, their way of thinking about themselves and communicating with others so that they can improve their wellbeing and relationships and feel better, more positive and able to make the best choices for the future.


How we would be working together

I can offer you a free, short online or telephone chat or a single paid appointment with no obligation to continue afterwards. You can see how you feel. I offer short and long term therapy to suit you and a combination of Face to Face, Online therapy, Telephone therapy and Walk and Talk Therapy. You can choose the therapy setting that suits you.

I trained in Relational Integrative Therapy. This means that we would be working very much together, informed by different psychological approaches to individually suit you. You may be experiencing over-anxiety, depression, stress, anger, bereavement, having trouble with relationships or social situations. I have helped many people with these issues and I can help you too so that you can feel happier, more positive and lead a more fulfilled life.

We would take time to settle into our working relationship so that you can feel the trust that you need in order to speak about whatever is bringing you to counselling. I have completed a wide variety of training and can offer you different therapeutic ways to look at your life past and present in order to find a better way forward which you can maintain.

Some things that might initially prompt people to come to come to therapy would include high levels of anxiety and stress, feeling low, changes in life circumstances including loss of a relationship, the quality of relationships present and past, hormonal changes, trauma, low self-esteem.
