About me and my therapy practice

I am passionate about normalising "getting help". I believe that asking for help is often a huge first step and a catalyst for change.

Nothing major needs to have happened to come to therapy, it may just be that you need a space to talk about what is happening and address any niggles that are stopping you from living the life you want to live.

Why me? I want to create a space where you will feel heard, you won't feel judged, you will be accepted and I can hope to meet you where you are in life. I would like to support you through self-discovery, finding your own answers and help you to feel empowered to look towards the future with a better outlook and make the changes you want in your own life.

Practice description

Who do I work with?


I primarily work with young people 13+ and adults.

What sort of issues do I deal with?

  • Anxiety
  • Self-esteem
  • Identity
  • Relationship issues
  • Feeling low
  • Overwhelm
  • Bullying
  • Bereavement, grief & loss
  • Body Image

I work in a person-centred way. I will work hard to create an empathic, non-judgemental relationship and environment where I will help you explore your feelings and experiences, deepen your understanding of self, as we bring into awareness where and why you might be stuck.

My first session

I offer a free initial chat via telephone or Zoom.

In this first session, we will get to know each other a little more. It will be an opportunity for you to talk about what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to get from it. Please do not worry if you don't yet know this, it's something we can work on together. 

Equally, it will give me the opportunity to explain to you the way in which I work. You will be able to ask any questions and together we can decide whether we feel we would be a good fit and wish to work together moving forward.
