About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes life can feel tough. Whether you are feeling anxious, alone, disempowered or vulnerable, finding it hard to manage or come to terms with something in your life, or struggling with a past trauma – I am committed to helping you explore and make sense of your experiences with the aim of finding a way to experience life differently. Whatever you are struggling with, I provide a safe, warm, therapeutic space where you will be listened to with compassion, understanding and without judgement. Trusting someone new can be hard - I make every effort to help you feel cared for so that you can get the most of out therapy.

I am a Counselling Psychologist in my final months of training, currently practicing as a Psychotherapist. I have over 10 years experience working with individuals who are struggling with psychological, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Much of my experience comes from working in the NHS across secondary and specialist care with people suffering with chronic physical and mental health conditions. My practice is relational and integrative which means that I am trained in a range of theoretical models so that I am able to provide a flexible approach to suit your needs. I also offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am passionate about my work and committed to helping you explore and make sense of your experiences with the aim of finding a way to experience life differently.

My fees are £40 for an initial consultation and £50 for therapy sessions. I offer therapy slots on Tuesdays (day time and evening) and Thursday evenings, but please do get in touch to enquire about availability.
