Availability

Due to COVID-19, I am currently only seeing clients online or by telephone. Although different from face-to-face work, it can be just as effective and suits many people well. Please do get in touch if you have any questions about working online or if you'd like to give it a try and book an initial session.



About me and my therapy practice

It can take a lot of courage to ask for support when you’re feeling low, anxious or when life is throwing challenges your way.

As a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor, I offer a calm, compassionate and confidential space to help you untangle your thoughts and feelings away from your everyday life; where you can unburden, and shine fresh light on your difficulties, and navigate periods of change or loss.

We’ll work together creatively to find a focus and approach that works for you, to help you heal, grow and find a way forwards.

My approach

As an integrative therapist, I draw on various theoretical models in order to tailor an approach to suit you.

You're the expert on you, so sessions are led by what you bring. I provide empathy, compassion and guidance to support your growth. I also help draw out difficult and/or unconscious feelings and patterns of behaviour to enable change. Acknowledging the impact of early relationships on the ways in which we relate to one another.​

I also draw inspiration from: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), creative therapies and mindfulness honouring the connection between the body and the mind.

​I believe it is important to acknowledge power structures, and intersecting oppressions (such as race, class and sexuality) and their impact on clients' mental health.
