About me and my therapy practice

I am only working online or by telephone with people aged over 16 years old. Home visits may be possible depending on location.

I’m an accredited qualified counsellor with experience of counselling young people and adults.  I can help with a wide range of difficulties. No problem is too big or trivial.

Please get in touch by phone, text or email if you'd like to arrange a free 15 minute chat to find out if I'm the right counsellor for you or your child. You can then make a decision about whether you'd like to work with me or not.

I provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore your difficulties and help you find your strengths. I listen with warmth and without judgement. I see my clients as whole people, so work with your mind, body, spirit and environment. I can also share some strategies that research has found to be helpful in managing difficulties such as flash backs, self harm and anxiety. However, I won't tell you how to live your life or what to do. I believe that with the right support you will be able to trust yourself to make the decisions and changes that are right for you.

I am a Humanistic Existential counsellor who also uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (a cognitive behavioural therapy). I also use elements of Transactional Analysis, a phased approach to trauma, Mindfulness, Attachment theory and Systemic theory. I am trained in the use of art and play techniques which can be useful to help clients to express themselves, get in touch with feelings and process difficult life events. I can tailor my approach according to your needs. 

I am trained in the assessment and treatment of chronic insomnia.
