About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with bereavement, loss, relationship problems, stress or anxiety? Do you or someone you care about have a diagnosis of Autism or Aspergers? 

I have experience working with the bereaved at any age through volunteering with The Bereavement Counselling Charity. I am also currently counselling young adults (18-25) at the University of Portsmouth Student Wellbeing Service. 

Through personal experience and work with young clients I have a good understanding of some of the issues faced by those on the Autistic Spectrum. 

I can help by providing a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore your feelings.

I work in a person-centred way, accepting and valuing you, seeing your world as you experience it. I will be honest and transparent about how I experience you and will help you explore whatever issues you bring to our session, promoting greater self awareness and helping you reach your potential. I can also help support and normalise your grief and loss.
