About me and my therapy practice

Hi, thank you for stopping by my profile. How are you feeling? Do you need to talk to someone who is there to listen? Is it time for you to focus on yourself?


My way of working is to focus on a relational field – meaning that I will stand by your side and walk with you on your journey through your feelings and thought processes. Coming to counselling is something very personal and I aim to make you feel that you are in a safe, secure and warm space to explore what is going on for you.

I believe that we all have the power to change and grow as human beings. To focus on your feelings and the physical manifestations of the emotions (felt-sense) can really bring forward a new awareness to you about yourself. I believe that with tapping into your felt-sense, you can feel empowered to ignite change within your life.

Practice description

My qualifications include:

  • BSc (Hons) in Integrative Counselling - Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling - Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Level 1 and 2 Certificate in Counselling skills
  • Various CPD certificates - including online and telephone counselling.


I have counselled for The OutHouse charity for 2 and ½ years.

My experience includes counselling trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem and issues with sexuality and gender identity.

I have counselled over 450 hours of one to one counselling (which also includes online and telephone counselling).

My first session

Feel free to contact me to book your first session or to have a free 15 minute initial discussion. Once you have booked, we can talk about what you wish to explore within counselling and how I can support you. We would discuss confidentiality in counselling and also the contract that would be agreed between us.

It also gives you the opportunity to see if you are comfortable in counselling space and if you feel you wish to continue with further sessions.
