About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes life can look rosy to the outside world but our internal world can look and feel very different.   Maybe you are hiding how  flat, exhausted, low, angry or unfulfilled you are feeling. Perhaps you feel like you are spinning out of control. Leaving you uncertain,  unsettled and unable to relax.

It could be that you are pleasing others all the time, scared of saying what you really want. Or you feel like you’ve lost sight of who you are, unsure of what you truly want from life.

Maybe you are snapping at the people around you, constantly pushing people away and yet feeling so lonely. Unsure of where you belong but feeling like you have to fix it on your own.

Perhaps you dread night times or weekends because relaxation or sleep seem so far away and keeping busy seems like the only option.

You might want to feel calmer, be more able to relax and rebuild relationships with those around you. To feel more at peace in your own mind and body.

Therapy offers a consistent, protected oasis in our ever busy and fast changing world. A place of calm where you can find comfort in sharing your story, begin to set boundaries and rebuild relationships with yourself and those in your life.   

I have experience in supporting people of various ages, genders and backgrounds with a wide range of issues. I have worked extensively with those who have experienced trauma, grief, sexual abuse, depression and anxiety, identity and relationship issues. 

I have a particular interest in working with those who grew up in a boarding school environment or those who experienced separation from their parents in childhood.  I have completed specialist training in this area with Nick Duffell.  

Practice description

I offer counselling in person and online (via zoom) or by phone.   

Appointments are available during the daytime (Wednesday - Friday) and evenings (Wednesday & Thursday) which means that I am here for you at times that suit you.

My first session

I invite you to arrange a free introductory call (either by phone or by zoom). 

Typically an introductory call lasts 20 - 30 minutes, I will ask you about for a little background about yourself and what's bringing you to seek therapy just now.  It's an opportunity for us to get to know each other, for you can ask any questions you might have and for us to see if the way that I work is a good fit for you.

There is no obligation start therapy with me but if we do both feel that we would work well together and our diaries match up, we can arrange our first session together.

About me and my therapy practice

I see supervision as an opportunity for you to take a step back and together reflect on your client relationships. A place to work through ethical dilemmas or anything you might be finding challenging or demanding and to celebrate progression.

My aim is to provide a safe, compassionate, collaborative, and supportive environment which offers exploration and supportive challenge. I will work hard to honour your unique style, wellbeing, growth and professional development whilst keeping your clients at the very heart of our work together.

I use the Seven-Eyed model of supervision developed by Peter Hawkins to underpin my supervision practice. I work in a supervisee centred way.

I am a Registered Member of the BACP, and work within their Ethical Framework and Professional Conduct Procedure.


• BSc (Hons) in Person Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy (University of Derby)

• PG Cert in Clinical Supervision (University of Derby)

• Certificate in Couples and Relationship Counselling

• Psychotherapy training with Nick Duffel working with Boarding School Survivors

• Certificate in Online Counselling (Webcam and Phone)

I regularly undertake additional CPD training to keep my knowledge up to date.

I work solely in private practice, working with people who have experienced bereavement, burnout or trauma and abuse, including Boarding School survivors.

I am committed to offering supervision in an anti-discriminatory way. I work with people of all genders, ages, abilities / disabilities, cultures, neurodiversity, ethnicity, sexes, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, class, and socio-economic groups.    

I work with a number of specialisms that therapists may benefit from booking one off consultations to explore:

Boarding School Survivors; Bereavement, loss & grief;  Relationship difficulties;  Broken Attachments; Trauma & abuse.  Please contact me to discuss further.  

Practice description

Our work can take place either in my fully accessible, brightly lit, spacious, comfortable, and calm therapy room or via Zoom.

I hold an enhanced DBS certificate for children & adult workforce.

I offer supervision on an individual or group basis.  

I am available for:

- longer term supervision

- one off sessions to cover a break in supervision due to illness or holidays etc

- Consultations on the specialisms I work with

My first session

I offer a free initial 30 minute session to give us both the time and space to get to know each other a little, explore your hopes and fears for supervision and to see if we would be a good fit together.

During this first session we can also pay attention to confidentiality and boundaries. We will look at your individual needs, style of working and the relationships you hold with your clients, as well as the setting of your practice.

We can meet with online or in person.


1 hour - £70

1.5 hours - £90

Group supervision (groups of 4) - £60 per person (2 hours)
