About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP registered counsellor offering support to adults (18+) with a wide range of issues, including those who have experienced sexual violence and domestic abuse. My aim is to provide a safe and confidential space where we can work at a pace that feels right for you. Together we will work alongside one another to help you make sense of your experiences, thoughts and feelings.

Perhaps you feel that you find yourself in the same situations, or that anxiety is impacting on your daily life. Maybe you are struggling to make sense of choices and decisions. You may need space to heal after distressing life experiences.

As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I will find a way of working that is tailored to you by drawing on counselling approaches most suited to your needs. I will not give advice or opinions, but together we will build a therapeutic relationship where you can feel assured that your thoughts and emotions will be truly heard and understood without judgement. I am passionate about helping clients believe change and healing is possible and will aim to help you gain confidence, clarity, and new perspectives enabling you to make choices that feel right for you going forward.

During my time working in a specialist sexual violence and domestic abuse organisation I supported clients who experienced PTSD, Complex PTSD, dissociation, DID, flashbacks and panic attacks. Many people also struggled with anxiety, relationships, self-doubt, trust and shame. Difficulties experienced by clients are by no means exclusive to abuse and I have also worked within a general counselling organisation where clients presented with a broad spectrum of issues including depression, bereavement, eating disorders and work-related stress.
