About me and my therapy practice

Hello. I offer integrative counselling; child/young people specialist; adult referrals welcome. You can use creative methods or 'just talk' to explore difficulties and get support, tailored to you and your needs. Commitment-free initial discussion available.

I have over twenty years' experience of working with children, young people and adults in education and health settings. I am passionate about the power of play, and the importance of an emotionally available other, to help people thrive. 

Practice description

I qualified in 2022 and have worked across diverse settings including schools (with pupils and staff) and a CAMHS team. 

I am passionate about finding the right blend for each person, combining humanistic counselling and psychotherapy knowledge with neuroscience and trauma research to holistically meet my clients' needs. 

I am professionally qualified with a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, as well as an MSc in Psychology and postgraduate qualifications from my teaching career. I am undergoing further study to become a Child Psychotherapist.

My first session

The first session with me will be a welcome assessment where we get to meet each other, I take some background and contact information, and we decide whether the counselling is right for both of us. This is key to successful work! 

I can offer both shorter and longer durations of counselling and we will agree, together, how many sessions there will be.
