About me and my therapy practice

About me

If you are struggling with an area of your life, counselling gives you a safe space to explore what is causing you difficulty and aims to help you find a way forward. It is not always an easy journey, but I am here to walk alongside you.

I specialise in working with emergency services staff and can use the Rewind Trauma Therapy technique to help with flashbacks and nightmares following being involved in, or witnessing, a traumatic event. Talking therapy can then be used to process the event.

​I work with women's issues, such as: life transitions (retirement, menopause, divorce, new parents and preparing for end-of-life). I am accredited to work with pregnancy, infant loss and bereavement to work with parents and birth professionals around birth, pregnancy or postnatal trauma. I also have training to work with dissociative identity disorder and am a workplace mediator and an ILM 5 level Coach.


At an initial session we can discuss your concerns/issues and can see if we have a rapport. You are under no obligation to continue after the initial session if you feel we are not a good match. Counselling is as much about the relationship as it is about the work we do together.

Sessions: £50 per 50 minute session. 

A concessionary rate of £40 is also available, depending on your circumstances.
