About me and my therapy practice

I'm an experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.  I work flexibly and dynamically with adults, young people, couples and families, providing a safe space where we can explore any concerns, anxiety, depression or low self-esteem you are experiencing - at your own pace.  

Challenges can arise from feeling out of balance, confused or overwhelmed. Sometimes things beyond our control in the outside world can add to a sense of pressure or hopelessness, you might be going through a bereavement or loss or struggling with an addiction. I welcome you to take the first step, come and meet with me for a low cost initial session and we can discover if we might go on to work together.


I feel fortunate to have met Miriam at a particularly challenging time in my life.  I felt safe and at ease, while delving into things for the first time.  My head feels much clearer and my outlook is more balanced.  I highly recommend her and have passed on her details to many others.

We found Miriam warm, approachable and insightful.  Our journey was tough at times, but she navigated us through it with skill and patience.  

(testimonial by R and R)

Miriam offered a safe space for us to understand and work through some difficult feelings.  She remained impartial and supportive of both of us, encouraging us to focus on positive progress whilst recognising our feelings as individuals.  She helped us get to a much better place.
