About me and my therapy practice

Taking some time for yourself is extremely important.

Are you having issues with anxiety or depression? Do you feel as though you are at a crossroads in your life? Counselling can offer the space and “me” time to work on any issues that you have concerns about.

I understand that counselling can seem quite daunting, but we can work through your fears together in a safe and confidential space.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and Accredited Member of the BACP. I have experience of working with adults in a variety of different environments including NHS and Mental Health charities. I have extensive experience in anxiety, depression and working with sexual abuse and childhood trauma. I am also happy to work with students who have a course requirement. I am also a Lecturer in Counselling at the Gloucestershire College.

At the moment, I am offering online/telephone sessions which can be done on Teams/Zoom. I also offer Face-to-face sessions in a private and comfortable space.

My first session

To have a better understanding of you, I would organise a short phone call to discuss availability and to discuss what it is you wanting from coming to counselling.


In our initial session, I will do an assessment and ask about the reasons you have come to the counselling, take some background and history of yourself and we can discuss your expectations of the counselling and what you would like to achieve.
