About me and my therapy practice

We all have a unique experience of life, an experience that consists of situations and events that sometimes leave us overwhelmed.  Feelings such as anxiety, depression, anger, isolation, loneliness, and hopelessness can leave us feeling lost and unsure of our purpose and worth, disconnected from our authentic selves, and therefore others.


Therapy can be described as a journey of exploration, one that illuminates what it means to be you.  It awards an opportunity to nurture and nourish the relationship you have with yourself (in my experience, the most overlooked and neglected relationship). What is more, such a process of self-nurturing and self-development can often lead to positive changes within the relationships you hold with others. 



NCIP Advanced Cert. Couples Therapist

Couples accessing therapy often do so when feelings of connection, consistency, companionship, and trust have been replaced with feelings of disconnection, uncertainty, loneliness, and anger. Reasons for such a shift in relationships can include infidelity, loss, conflicting wants and needs, financial stress, breakdowns in communication, and significant life changes.

I provide a safe and supportive space where you and your partner can work together to identify, explore, and address any issues or concerns negatively impacting your relationship. Through the development of more effective communication skills, you can both begin to express your thoughts and feelings whilst feeling heard and understood by the other. Thus, awarding an opportunity for you both to reconnect and move forward toward a more fulfilling future. 

Practice description

I am a BACP registered counsellor, with a BA (Hons) degree in person-centred, existential counselling. Through additional training, I have developed an integrative approach, which means the support I offer integrates a range of modalities and techniques, specifically tailored to the needs of my clients. 

I strive to provide a relational space in which you feel prized and understood, without judgement. It is within this unique relationship that we work together to address the issues and concerns negatively impacting your life.  Whether you are seeking support for yourself or your relationship I am here to support you in achieving a positive outcome.

I have both professional and personal experience relating to addiction and substance dependency.   For such issues, I offer empathic, non-judgmental support, through which we can explore and work through the causes, consequences, and any conflicting thoughts and feelings associated with recovery.

If you believe I can provide the support you are seeking, whether it be for yourself as an individual or for your relationship as a couple, please do not hesitate to contact me, I look forward to speaking with you.  If I am not the therapist for you, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best in finding the therapeutic support you are seeking. 

My first session

I appreciate how daunting the first session can be, so I aim to make the experience both welcoming and comfortable. I encourage you to bring any questions or concerns you may have regarding myself, my practice, or the therapeutic process as a whole.

Our first session will involve exploring what brought you to therapy, and what you hope to gain from our sessions. It will be an opportunity to get to know each other a little, before deciding whether we can work together towards achieving any desired outcomes or goals you may have. If we do decide to continue together, this will be the time for us to negotiate a suitable day, time, and frequency of subsequent sessions.
