About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome. I am a dedicated, experienced and qualified counsellor. I have worked for both the NHS and in the private sector with adults experiencing a broad range of issues including:

- feeling stressed, worried, guilt and shame, burnout, empty, unable to cope with overwhelming emotions, repeating negative patterns, feeling lost and scared

- unable to get in touch with emotions; repressing and burying feelings

- confidence and self-esteem.

Perhaps you find yourself at a crossroads in life and require some help. I will listen to you attentively and with sincerity, offering a quality of attention that will enable us to explore your situation, the effect it is having on you and how you might work through it.


Anxiety, depression and stress

I have extensive experience helping people struggling with anxiety, depression and stress, and the shame that these emotions might involve.

Life transitions

I have a deep understanding of personal life transitions, sudden shocks and the difficulties involved. These issues may include divorce, separation, relationships, parental and family issues.

Difficult childhood

I support adults who are experiencing distress in adulthood due to challenging childhoods. This can include abuse, trauma, parental separation or bullying.

Relationship and couples’ therapy

My intention is to help you navigate family and relationship issues, such as feeling unheard and misunderstood, repetitive arguments and separation decisions.

Practice description


You might feel overwhelmed by or anxious about a situation you want to resolve. I will hold space for your needs.

Through attending therapy, you can see your circumstances in a new light, gaining a deeper and stronger awareness of yourself and your relationships with others. This can enable you to realise your potential and discover a more authentic self.

My first session

Please get in touch for an initial 50-minute consultation at no cost. During this time we can discuss your goals for therapy and go through any questions you might have.

I usually hold sessions with my clients at the same time each week (this can be flexible depending on your circumstances).

I am currently offering in-person sessions. Online and telephone appointments are also available.
