About me and my therapy practice
Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be difficult, I hope that reading my profile makes you feel at ease, and I am able to work with you on your therapeutic journey.

Other areas of experience are Anger management, Anxiety, adverse childhood experiences, Cultural issues, Depression, Identity, Personal development, Relationship difficulties, Self-esteem, Self-harm, Stress, Suicidal ideation.
Do you identify with any of the following statements?
I struggle to share my emotions
I am finding it hard to answer the question ‘who am I?
Due to a complex family history, I am conflicted about my identity
I feel a pressure to be or act a certain way
I change my opinions or preferences regularly to fit in socially
As a pluralistic therapist I value difference and approach my client work with and open mind. Thus, ensuring you can discuss your preferences and together we work towards you achieving your therapeutic aims & goals. I use varied client led interventions which can include person-centred, solution focused, brief and psychodynamic therapy.
I can also use creative therapies which may consist of poetry, art, or sand tray therapy. I find being able to work with a variety of mediums allows my clients to express their emotions when they find voicing their feelings difficult.
First-hand personal experience of the care system from being in care myself, to then becoming a foster carer and qualified Social Worker, has allowed me to truly empathise with those of similar experience. These experiences have also given me an understanding of the importance of being truly heard, accepted for who you are and having a safe space in which to share concerns and worries.
Although considered a bright, colourful character, I provide a pluralistic approach to therapy, in a calm relaxed atmosphere, where through working together, we can find a way to explore how best to support you through your therapeutic journey.
I have my own counselling room (Rainbow Counselling Cabin) situated in my garden with a separate entrance which provides a tranquil, private space.
I provide a confidential service; I can work face to face or virtually and offer short-term, long-term or single session counselling and psychotherapy depending on your needs.
Ensuring that I continue my professional development by regularly attending relevant training and supervision.
