About me and my therapy practice

I will work alongside you to explore difficulties, losses and changes you may wish to make; to increase your understanding of yourself and thus maximise your potential. My breath of experience of working with individuals and with referrals from the emergency and medical services and with the corporate sector, enables me to work with what you need: whether it be healing, letting go or new ways to see your situation. Gaining insights from the past to help you shape your future narrative and relationships.

Why do we go to counselling?

It may start with loss of a relationship, a difficulty at work, anxiety, childhood abuse/adverse childhood experiences but it can also manifest as feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed, of feeling excluded, losing confidence or not being able to see a way forward.

How can counselling help?

Counselling offers a safe and non-judgmental space to explore feelings and concerns. It can provide both a sense of release and insight as to why we are feeling the way we are. The process of sharing with a safe, trained, other person allows us to reframe past experiences. This trusting relationship that the client and counsellor build together supports the forging of new ways of seeing yourself and your situation, adopting strategies that "hold" you through a difficult period. We can begin to feel more confident about our resources and increase our sense of our own autonomy, whilst healing past wounds.


Practice description

What can I offer you?

Close, affirming attention to what you are saying and feeling. Focusing with you on past hurts, present aspirations and hopes. The relationship we develop together is key to enable healing and growth when working with hurts and difficulties. I will provide a safe, confidential space in which you will feel accepted and heard.

Some of my areas of expertise include:

Trauma resolution, specifically using EMDR to process disturbing memories & reduce emotional, somatic and behavioural symptoms of the associated anxiety.

Attachment & Relationship: how attachment patterns and family dynamics can influence our relationship choices and our responses within our relationships.

Work environment: organisational change; inappropriate work demands; bullying & harassment: work-related stress; assertiveness; retirement.

Student issues: relationships; self-care, anxiety, isolation; study problems

My first session

The initial consultation is an opportunity to explore what you would like from counselling. We then may work short term - usually six to eight sessions - or longer term depending on what you want. I can work flexibly in terms of time and face to face or Zoom or a mixture of both. I aim to provide a safe and comfortable environment which helps to engender relaxation and reflection. If useful to you, I will create tailor-made resources to equip you with strategies between sessions.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified (Postgraduate Cerificate in Counselling Supervision, Leeds University) supervisor.

My experience as a supervisor includes group supervision and individual supervision. In addition to providing clinical supervision for qualified, accredited and trainee counsellors, I have also provided supervision for individuals working in other professions: doctors, nurses and trainers.

The clinical supervision I provide includes those working in private practice and counsellors working in a range of contexts including primary care, counselling agencies and charities.

Practice description

My practice is informed by the theoretical models of Hawkins & Shohet, Wosket and the creative approaches of Inskip and Proctor.


I am experienced in working with supervisees whose underpinning theoretical orientations include person centred, integrative, psychodynamic and CBT.

My first session

I seek to agree mutual goals and be transparent and responsive in my approach. Together we will create a reflective space that can be supportive, challenging and creative for both experienced practitioners and trainee counsellors. I believe that supervision is an important part of taking care of oneself and having reflective space is an important part of that process.
