About me and my therapy practice

I believe a welcoming, safe and supportive therapeutic environment is the key to emotional healing and personal growth. Working together, we will make sense of whatever has become a problem for you in the 'here and now' or enduring issues with their roots in the past. My hope is you will not only gain clarity and insight but know you have been understood in the context of your history, gender, sexuality and culture. I believe often when we are faced with fears linked to uncertainty, uncontrollability and unpredictability or feeling hopeless about the future, counselling/psychotherapy can support us to make a lasting change.

I have a BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling and I am an NHS High-Intensity (evidenced-based CBT) Trainee.
