About me and my therapy practice
Hello and welcome. There may be many different reasons why you are here.
I offer a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can explore what it means to be you. I work with young people over 16 and adults of all ages, identity, sexuality or disability. We use sessions to explore whatever you would like, moving at your pace, with options to work short or long term or open ended.
Maybe you're experiencing challenges, grief, loss, depression or anxiety or a mixture of complex and confusing feelings and moving forward feels hard. Or finding yourself stuck, repeating patterns and wondering why. Perhaps you experienced difficulties and trauma in the past, are finding things tough in the present or are worried about the future.
Seeking support during these times can help. I believe we have the ability to change and become, to shift and grow.
Working together, we can look at your unique life experiences and how this may be affecting you in the now. Gaining understanding and insight into ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, you can start to make sense of how to move forward in a way you wish.
There is the option of working outside in various places on the Blackdown Hills in Somerset to reconnect with nature and self or working creatively with different mediums.
My training is integrative, meaning I draw on Psychodynamic, Humanistic and CBT models, whilst keeping you the client and the therapeutic relationship at the heart.

My first session
It is important to find the right therapist for you, someone you feel comfortable with. I offer a free, 20 minute initial telephone call or online consultation, with no obligation to commit.
During this session I will ask what has bought you to therapy, any goals you may have and the length of time you wish to work together. You will be able to ask any questions you have about how I work and what to expect.
If you decide to work with me, sessions are held weekly and are 50 minutes long.
