About me and my therapy practice

I specialise in working with adults and young people experiencing anxiety (including general, social and health anxiety), as well as people facing the challenges of bereavement, infertility, relationship breakdown and other forms of life crisis or transition.

I have trained primarily as an integrative humanistic counsellor, but have also undertaken training in psychodynamic counselling and CBT, which I will draw upon if I feel they will be beneficial to the individual I'm working with. 

I see it as my role to create a safe, supportive space where you are able to talk freely about any experiences and feelings that are causing you pain or preventing you from living life as you would like.

​As we explore your inner world together, my aim is never to judge or advise, but rather to understand how you experience life, to help you to challenge ways of being that no longer meet your needs, and to explore emerging new possibilities as you gain a deeper understanding of how you would like to live your life going forward. 

I offer a free initial consultation in order to explore how therapy might work for you, what has brought you to seek support right now and, importantly, the outcomes you are hoping to achieve. If, after this, we both feel that we can work effectively together, we will agree a day and time for your counselling sessions, usually on a weekly basis.
