About me and my therapy practice

Life can feel difficult, and we might not even know why. It can be helpful to work through our feelings in a safe, confidential, and supportive therapeutic relationship. I believe the answers are in us as individuals, and that we also benefit from being alongside someone as we explore our thoughts and feelings, and get a deeper understanding of ourselves.

As a fully qualified integrative counsellor and BACP Registered member, and an HR professional with over 15 years experience in multinational companies, I am passionate about personal growth and development. Talking to someone we feel comfortable with, and who does not judge us, can help.

So whether you are looking to explore current life circumstances, grow your understanding of how the past affects you today, or face concerns about the future, I can support you on your journey.

My first session

My fee is £50 for each 50 minute session.

I offer an initial 15 minute phone consultation free of charge. In this no obligation discussion you can share what you’d like to get from therapy, ask questions, and get a sense of what it’s like talking to me. After this, if you decide I’m the right therapist for you, you can book an appointment in your own time.

Send me a message to arrange a phone consultation.
