About me and my therapy practice


Finding the right therapist is really important!

About me:

I am a warm approachable and relational counsellor, I work sensitively and at a pace that best suits you.

My focus in therapy is to listen and help you find healing, acceptance and peace.

I also believe that therapy can support integration of mind, body and spirit and assist in a more balanced sense of self. Whatever your beliefs and values I welcome you to share this, as this is integral to your sense of self.

Practice description

How I work:

I am currently working Face to Face in person, Online via Zoom and by Telephone. Subject to availability.

I work in an integrative way, simply meaning I will use a variety of theories and tools to work with you as a unique individual. I believe that no one therapeutic approach has all the answers and therapy should be tailored to meet everyone's individual needs.

I aim to provide a supportive environment to enable my clients to feel understood, less anxious, and empowered to start moving forward with their lives.

I work with: • individuals • couples • families • children •

If you would like to find out more or have a few questions, please do feel free to message me. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
