About me and my therapy practice

I understand that life is often spent worrying about the future and despairing about the past, meaning we are unable to fully experience the life we have and neglect our well-being. Therapy provides an opportunity to attend to the well-being of your body and mind, for a healthier, more balanced life.

Individual therapy is available for anyone – whether you are struggling to cope with the many challenges that life presents, or you would like to develop a deeper understanding of how to experience a more balanced, meaningful life - a compassionate, collaborative therapeutic relationship provides a supportive environment for anyone to cultivate growth and change.

I offer an integrative approach to counselling and psychotherapy that places you at the heart of the process, encouraging a greater sense of well-being for your body and mind. Your story is unique to you and therefore holds the narrative of how you see yourself and the world you experience. Exploring your history, with compassion and acceptance, will allow you to make healthier, more informed choices for you, that will enable you to experience a more balanced and understanding perspective of you, the life you have lived and the experiences yet to come.

Practice description

Explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences

There may be occasions in our lives when we struggle to make sense of what is happening to us and the world we experience. Depression, anxieties, stress, loss of a loved one and traumatic moments are some of many unforeseen events, that can all change the way we see ourselves and the life we are living.

Therapy provides an opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences within a relationship that is free of the fears we may hold about disclosing to people we know. I offer a relationship of trust, honesty and openness that allows you to explore your story, thoughts, hopes and fears, in a safe, supportive, confidential place, free of external influences and judgement, providing an opportunity for personal insight and change.

  • BA (Hons) Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy
