About me and my therapy practice

  • I believe that if you are thrown a ball you don't have to catch it and that when in life we are  troubled by our experiences or feel a of a lack of control over our circumstances; knowing when to take that catch or let it go, can be daunting.

  • I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and work with a humanistic approach using CBT and Attachment theory to underpin my counselling work with adults and young people. I like to work creatively with my clients to suit their individual needs and collaborate with them to find solutions to the problems they face. 

  • I work in private practice from my home and offer both short or long term work with my clients depending on their situation and circumstance. Having a private, safe and confidential space to discuss your difficulties away from the pressures you are facing in life is important to me.

    I started my career as a teacher and have 30 years experience of working in secondary schools, I have a lot of experience working with teenagers and their families as they progress through adolescence and understand the pressures facing young people today.

    Facing change and feeling disrupted or 'out of sorts' is a common theme for both adults and young people living in our 24/7 world. As a mindfulness teacher and coach, I can help my clients develop strategies and learn new skills to help them manage the challenges they face with more confidence and self-belief.
