About me and my therapy practice

"You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending"- C.S. Lewis

You come to this journey as the expert on you. I will walk alongside you: reflecting, exploring, untangling, listening and gently challenging if appropriate, to help give you more insight and a deeper understanding of yourself.

I am an accredited CBT therapist and Integrative Counsellor meaning that I can work with a range of Counselling techniques, or solely with CBT. This gives a tool kit to adapt to your sessions and tailor the approach to suit your needs. The clients I work with are aged 12 and over. 

I also offer animal assisted therapy my dog, Weasel.

CBT is helpful for Depression and Anxiety Disorders, but can also be really useful for understanding how our thoughts, behaviours, emotions and physical sensations interplay and create cycles and patterns. We can look just at the here and now, or at how the past has shaped us and fed into the patterns and cycles.

With Counselling I work in a creative way, or by talking. We can adapt the sessions to fit what works for you. Counselling is a reflective space where we can examine either past experiences or present.

Practice description

I value the topics that you want to discuss, whatever these may be: no subject is off limits, shameful, or taboo. These are your sessions to use in the way that is most beneficial to you.

My role as a therapist is to listen without judgement and to look at the concerns you have through your eyes. I will help you to make sense of what is troubling you, to reflect with you, to help bring awareness to alternative perspectives or ways of being, to bring distance to thoughts and emotions, or simply just to sit and listen and to hold hope and self compassion for you until you are ready to hold this for yourself.

I have worked in CBT and Counselling across a variety of sectors including:


- NHS Talking Therapies (formerly IAPT)

- NHS Crisis Line 

- Secondary Schools 

- Pupil Referral Units

- Youth Offending Settings

Whilst Counselling allows us to work across a broad range of topics, my CBT training and accreditation has given me extensive experience and skills to also work with the following specific disorders in line with NICE Guidelines:

- Generalised Anxiety

- Health Anxiety

- Social Anxiety


- Specific Phobias

- Body Dysmorphic Disorder


- Depression
