About me and my therapy practice

Are you irritable, stressed and don't know why ? Keep yourself very busy, then have trouble sleeping or relaxing ? Do you feel uncomfortable in your relationships? Maybe you unexpectedly snap at people, your children, partner-spouse, pet ? Or you are very kind to others, even when inside you are saying no to yourself, but can't say it to them ? Perhaps you feel numb, or everyday places or sounds send you into a different space that physically disturbs you ? Life gets to us sometimes; do you want to find out why it is getting to you? I work with all adults 20+ (she/her) online & Tel: England & Wales

I am a Registered Member of BACP a professional group for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. All my training has been within BACP guidelines. 

Practice description

Do you want a confidential, non-judging fellow traveller on the journey to conquer your Everest? I gently offer support as you discover how to control the stress of mind and body behind the public mask, stick with you as you climb up to calm assertiveness, trust and self-worth in relationships. Contact me via to chat about your needs. 

I connect with you on a human-to-human level, accepting all aspects of your inner self you bring to the safe space. As an experienced professional counsellor, I offer creative tools that can unlock stuckness and increase yourself-knowledge. I can do flexible hours for shift workers and practical times to fit with your work Mon-Thurs Sat, 7 am to 8 pm.

It has regular ideas and discussions about how we all try to conquer our Everests. 

Technical Information

50 minute sessions, once a week. 

I use therapy tools as a person-centred and relational integrative trained trauma-informed therapist. In practice, this focuses on you as self-expert. I never advise or judge instead I reflect your inner world. Creative methods are transference, patterns of relationship, transpersonal that respect your life purpose. When stuck clients find the following successful. These are based on concepts of Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Inner Child, Transactional Analysis and Psychoeducation of the impact of and release from traumatic events.

My first session
