About me and my therapy practice

Do you ever feel lost at sea in need of a guiding light? Or stuck in life and not sure why? You may feel alone, like no one understands. All of these I can help with. I help people to unknot their emotions and make sense of their thought processes and way of ‘being’.

I work predominantly with trauma and the wide range of issues this brings such as PTSD, cPTSD, anxiety and depression. This trauma may be a result of childhood abuse or neglect or traumatic events that occurred later in life such as sexual or domestic abuse, disaster or other significant incident that now affects your behaviours and thought processes. I help you to stabilise, come to terms with traumatic memories, integrate and move on.

At the heart of my therapeutic practice, I believe we are all unique individuals, with differing life experiences, as such, I take an integrative approach. This means I am trained in a diverse range of therapeutic models so I can tailor myself to truly be by your side, you will no longer be alone.

Offering you a space filled with warmth and empathy, I provide total and complete acceptance, this is a safe place for you to explore yourself without fear of judgement. I help you to find your own answers, providing you a sense of empowerment and autonomy, you will find your own voice.

Practice description

I am based in a local community centre and see young people from 16 years+ and adults for one-to-one counselling who are experiencing a range of difficulties. I do not provide relationship or family counselling.

I also offer online sessions by Zoom

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, we can always have an informal chat over the phone to figure out what you might need.

My first session

It is important our therapeutic relationship works for you. We can therefore use a first appointment to get to know each other better, and to spend some time figuring out how therapy might be helpful for you. Initial sessions offer a chance to be heard, to ask questions and, to understand the process of talking therapy.

It can be daunting reaching out for help or starting the therapy process. I believe no one should feel alone and my natural approach provides the safety to open up. Whatever you are going through, you don't have to do it alone, there is always hope!
