About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my page. I’m an MBACP registered Counsellor, Psychotherapist  and Supervisor specialising in anxiety, self-belief, and relationships.

  • Do you often put yourself down and find it hard to show yourself compassion? Do you have high expectations and often don’t feel good enough?
  • Do you experience anxious and overwhelming feelings, or think the worst is going to happen? Does this hold you back?
  • Would you like your relationships to feel more fulfilling? Would you like to communicate your feelings more assertively?
  • Were your emotional needs unmet as a child and you continue to feel this way as an adult? You feel unheard, unloved, guilty, or ashamed.

I work with people aged 16+ providing a blend of coaching, counselling and psychotherapy depending on your aims and requirements. This style of person-centred therapy helps you to develop a better understanding of yourself so that you can feel more comfortable and confident within yourself.

I also provide family wellbeing services and courses for children and teens.


Practice description

Counselling changed the course of my life and has done so for many others too. It takes courage to ask for support and I will do all I can to make your experience comfortable and beneficial.

I specialise in helping people to believe in themselves, feel more resilient and able to cope, and to form healthier relationships.

You are in the right place if you would like to:

· have a safe and accepting place to share your story

· have mental clarity

· feel more confident

· be more comfortable in your relationships

· achieve your personal goals

. talk about difficult experiences

My promise to you:-

- I will accept you and your experiences unconditionally and without judgement.

- I will be genuine, honest and transparent in the hope that you feel comfortable sharing your experience.

- I will listen deeply to you, so you know that I hear your experience.

I offer a free, no obligation, 20 minute appointment to give us both the opportunity to see if we are comfortable working together. In this session you have the opportunity to share your reasons for accessing counselling and ask any questions you may have.

If you are a parent looking for resources, advice and tips to boost self-belief, resilience and confidence in your kids, please join my group - https://www.facebook.com/group/selfbeliefIf you'd like to learn more about me or join me on my mission to improve self belief, please visit my website or follow me on social media.

My first session

I offer a free, no obligation, 20 minute appointment to give us both the opportunity to see if we are comfortable working together. In this session you have the opportunity to share your reasons for accessing counselling and ask any questions you may have.

 If we decide to work together, before our first session I will send you a contract and client information sheet which I will ask you to read and sign. 

In the first session I will ask some questions which will provide an overview of yourself and your experience so that we know what you might want from counselling.

We will spend time getting to know each other and go from there!
