About me and my therapy practice

I have a special interest in helping adults who have unhelpful coping strategies that keep them stuck, such as eating too much or too little; drinking too much; withdrawing into themselves; and/or working harder to activate perfectionist and self-destructive behaviours.

Perhaps you are questioning who you are as you struggle with such feelings and question if you will ever feel better? Perhaps you struggle to find the right words to talk about how you are feeling and shut down if others ask how you are? You don't know where else to turn, try to struggle on, and feel afraid of what may happen if you're not okay.  You are exhausted and want things to change.

I would love to work with you, supporting you to find choices and meaning where neither seemed possible.  We can find a way of how to move forwards, into a future with confidence whereby you feel stronger, liberated and happier.  I work with warmth, honesty and compassion; and I use a unique blend of therapeutic techniques to suit your individual needs.

I am aware that it takes courage to begin therapy, and seeking support is often the hardest. I warmly invite you to get in touch and book a free 15-minute consultation to get a sense of how we might work together.

Practice description

I enjoy working in-person and online, making therapy easily accessible, both nationally and internationally. 

I offer individual one-to-one therapy for adults 18+.

I am a registered member of BACP, and a graduate member of BPS.

I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, a Level 5 Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic Skills and Theory, a BSc First-class Honours Degree in Psychology, Certificates in Counselling Studies and Counselling Skills; Certificate in Trauma and Complex PTSD.  

I am a qualified trauma therapist and I have extensive experience working with adults who have experienced Childhood Trauma in the form of rape, sexual abuse, neglect, childhood attachment issues and hidden trauma such as in the form of  bereavement and loss.

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating from the National Centre of Eating Disorders (London) and I am a qualified practitioner within the centre working with Anorexia Nervosa, ARFID, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder and Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders (OSFED).

I work with warmth and compassion to understand your inner world, using an integrative approach, tailoring the therapy to suit your personal needs. We might explore how past experiences and ways of coping are impacting on your present concerns, but our focus will be with what you are struggling with today.  We will seek to change what can be changed, and grow around what is not possible to change.

My first session

If my page resonates with you, I warmly invite you to email me to book your free 15-minute consultation to get a sense of how we can work together.  It is so important to find a therapist that you can truly connect with.

This will give you the opportunity to share something of what brings you to therapy, to ask any questions and to understand a little more about what I can offer you.

There is absolutely no pressure to book an appointment, but should you decide to go ahead, we will find a mutually convenient weekly time for your therapy sessions.  Once payment has been made by bank transfer, your place is secure, and I will email you a confirmation with my Welcome Pack containing a therapy consent form.
