About me and my therapy practice

I'm not your typical therapist, I won't stare at you with a concerned expression and constantly ask you "How did that make you feel?". I won't set you homework or tell you what to do, even when you ask me to!

I will however help you explore what's on your mind, understand your emotions and work with you to start building the life you want. I believe YOU are the expert on you. I'm just here to help you make sense of the noise in your head.

If you're looking for honesty, non-judgement and a space to share your story.

I am here to listen.

So if you are ready to make change happen. In choosing me, you can feel confident that you're working with a therapist who actually knows how to work with a range of life's challenges such as stress, work dissatisfaction, relationship issues, family conflict and bereavement.

I want you to be able to feel like yourself again, I'm ready when you are.


I've worked with clients with lots of different experiences, everyone is unique and individual but below are some of the areas I've supported;

• Depression

• Anxiety

• Communication Issues

• Relationship Issues

• Family conflict

• Family carers

• Work related Issues

• Life coaching

• Childhood trauma

Practice description

Free 30minute consultation call

You've probably googled lots of therapists by now, contacted a few but still not found the right one. Leaving you frustrated and considering giving up. This call will give you the opportunity to ask me any questions and I'll explain how my approach to therapy works.

It's really important you are comfortable with your therapist, you may feel ready to share personal experiences and thoughts you've never said out loud before or just want to sit in silence. No matter where you are, this call will help you decide whether I'm the therapist for you. If at the end of the call you don't think I'm the one, that's ok. I want you to find the person for you, that's why I will also let you know if I think another therapist would be better for you.

My first session

It's all about getting to know each other. You may have wanted to start therapy for a specific reason or just sick of feeling how you feel.

Talking to a stranger can feel daunting at first, we go entirely at your pace. We only discuss what you want to talk about, I won't ask you lots of questions.

We'll complete a simple contract together including some formalities, confidentiality and safeguarding.

Hopefully at the end of the session, you will want to continue your journey with me however there is no pressure to book another session unless you want to.
