About me and my therapy practice

Hi I am a Person-centred therapist who believes that you know yourself best and have the ability to find the answers for yourself, but occasionally we feel stuck or lost and need a little help to move forward. Working together we can find ways to overcome your obstacles and improve your life by exploring your inner thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences, and learning how to have a better understanding of them.

I provide a confidential, safe space where you can feel heard, understood and respected without feeling judged. Having space to explore your concerns, issues, dilemmas and fears. You'ill have time for yourself, where you are important without having to worry about anyone else. I will work with you at your pace, ensuring your autonomy throughout the time we have together to ensure you are happy with the outcome.

I have worked in counselling practices since 2015, working with clients from teens to retirement age. I have experience in working with clients who have relationship issues, bereavement issues, attachment issues and those who are affected by generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks, fear, anger, rage, depression, low self-esteem, low self-confidence and disability / health issues. I have also worked with clients who have experienced sexual and/or physical abuse. I am experienced in using the “rewind” technique for people with post traumatic stress disorder.

Having Experience of living with a physical disability myself and the challenges that brings, working with others that live with disabilities is something that is close to my heart. Supporting others with PIP assessments, discrimination at work, anxiety and depression, isolation and socialising difficulties, health concerns to name a few.
