About me and my therapy practice

I'm an experienced female Psychotherapist and Counsellor offering a bespoke therapeutic approach to meet your individual needs.  

I am Masters-qualified and BACP-accredited: I commit to their Ethical Framework, a professional code of conduct that gives you peace of mind, knowing that you are working with an ethical practitioner.

I work with a broad range of issues and can support you in providing a safe, confidential environment for you to explore your feelings, needs and difficulties. By exploring counselling, you are taking positive steps towards improving your wellbeing.

Practice description

I have specialist experience in Trauma and PTSD, in addition to a broad range of experience in working with Anxiety, Panic, Stress, Depression, Addiction, Abuse, Relationships, Couples Therapy and more.  My research interests include developmental psychology, attachment theory and menopause.

I can help you to better understand yourself and your difficulties. Together we can develop a range of coping mechanisms to help you feel more in control of your life.


My first session

For individuals, I offer a free telephone consultation to understand what you would like from therapy. We begin an assessment, with time for you to ask questions and for us both to see if we are a good fit for each other. (For couples, this is done within the first appointment.)

We can then look to arrange a first appointment, where we will work through the therapy agreement, understand your issues and challenges, agree aims and complete the assessment.
