About me and my therapy practice

We are living in unprecedented times and it could be that you are experiencing a whole range of emotions, from feeling stressed and anxious to world weary. What would be helpful? Online counselling provides an opportunity to explore personal difficulty in a safe contained, confidential and supportive environment. This may include expressing feelings that are painful, and which many of us experience at certain times in our lives. Counselling can help you to gain clarity into how you are feeling, support you to manage uncertainty and enable you to bring about changes in your life. Or let go of what cannot be changed.

I am an experienced and compassionate counsellor who strongly believes counselling works when you are able to build a trusting relationship with your counsellor. It is important for you to feel heard and understood and that you can speak openly about your experiences without concern that you will be judged. We can find coping strategies that work for you.

Practice description

I have 10 years of counselling experience and I am an accredited registered member of one of the major professional bodies the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

Over the last fifteen years I have had experience of working therapeutically with adults and young people in many different settings, including domestic abuse, supporting people living with HIV and in a higher educational setting. For the last eight years I have been working in university’s as a Senior Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor and I have successfully set up & managed a counselling service in a university’s halls of residence for students.

My first session

Life can be difficult with or without the COVID-19. If you would like to work together we can explore which is the best mode of online therapy, either via email, face time/zoom or over the telephone. Online counselling gives you the opportunity to access support at a time and in a place which is convenient to you.
