About me and my therapy practice

I work in Private Practice within my home, and offer a warm, empathic safe space where you can share your thoughts and feelings confidentially with me without the fear of being judged. Together, we will work explore your world and I will help and support you along the journey. It may seem daunting asking for help; discussing your most personal, painful life experiences with what seems like a stranger. I am here to help you develop an insight in to why you feel the way you do and together we can make you feel understood, supported, safe and validated. Call me for a free consultation.

Practice description

Are you feeling anxious, depressed or even suicidal? Regardless of life events, we can all at some point in our lives feel overwhelmed, whether that is due to a painful bereavement, relationship breakdown, in fact anything that has left you struggling with life and unable to process how we feel with regards our emotions. Have you experienced a painful event in your life which has left you feeling numb and unable to process?

I completed my training at The University of Nottingham in 2019 and gained a first class honours degree in Humanistic Counselling Practice.

I have experience working within Primary and Secondary Schools. I have also worked for charities supporting those recovering from drug/alcohol problems and vulnerable adults I enjoy working with clients with a range of issues, from bereavement to anxiety and everything in between.

My first session

During our first session together, I will explore with you what you want from our time together. I will answer any questions you may have as therapy can seem daunting for the first time and also talking to what seems like a stranger. I am here to offer help and support and hold you safe during our sessions as some aspects of your life that you would like to discuss with me may be very painful to voice.
