About me and my therapy practice

I have a range of experience with adults and children. I am here to listen to you and provide you with wholehearted empathy, with no judgement, so that you can work through what is going on for you.

I am a qualified Understanding Your Eating practitioner and have an advanced certificate in Eating Disorders. Alongside vast experience of working with Eating Disorders. 

I have experience of working as a School counsellor, with both children and adults, where I helped clients with a range of issues such as; relationship issues, feeling sad, generalised anxiety, low self esteem, phobias, self harm, sexuality, autism, bereavement, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, dissociation, depression, stress, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction, and suicidal ideation.

I am experienced in domestic abuse and trauma counselling. I have worked and trained with clients with a range of issues such as; emotional abuse, coercive control, physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, and psychological abuse.

I have thorough knowledge and experience of 12 step programmes such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, CODA, Narcotics Anonymous and Overeaters Anonymous.

I have been trained to work Integratively, which means that I combine different approaches. Everyone has different needs and by using an integration of different therapeutic approaches, you can get the most out of your personal counselling experience.

I work both time limited and open ended, something we would discuss during your assessment.

If you feel that I may be the right counsellor for you, please contact me via email or phone for a free initial phone assessment or further information. I am always happy to help. I look forward to hearing from you.
