About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified, integrative counsellor (Psychotherapy, CBT and Person-Centred) and I have a calm, warm and empathic approach. I understand that contemplating counselling can be a daunting experience, but I want to reassure you that I can offer a confidential and non-judgemental space for you to be listened to. Each session is led by you and at a pace which feels comfortable. I firmly believe the therapeutic relationship is a collaborative one, and we can work together to explore your feelings and emotions within a safe and supportive setting, and to take the first steps towards healing and growth. 

Practice description

I have a huge amount of experience of working with young people aged 11-18 and adults. As well as my private practice, I work as a secondary school counsellor and for Mind, and offer mental health support to NHS workers affected by the impact of COVID-19. I have a private counselling room at home, and I offer telephone as well as online counselling. I have experience of working with a range of areas including young people, anxiety and depression, suicidal ideation, OCD, self-harm, sexuality, bereavement and addiction. 

I previously worked as a teacher, so I am fully aware of how stress and anxiety can have a fundamental impact on securing a manageable work-life balance, both for the individual and for families. 

My first session

Due to this unprecedented time of COVID-19, I understand individuals may be feeling lonely, anxious and worried but I am here to offer support. I also understand how difficult it could be to take the first step and reach out, and that is why you can email me or speak to me on the phone if you have any questions. I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation to ensure I am the right counsellor for you, and we can work together.
