About me and my therapy practice

'We all have a story we must repeat until we get it right, a story whose conveniences must be corrected and whose simplifications must be seen through before we are done with it, or it with us’

Kenji Yoshino

Over the years I have become deeply interested in what it is to be human. How we make connections with others. How we find a place of belonging and what makes for a meaningful life. 

I have a relaxed, collaborative style and practice from a place which values uniqueness and diversity. I welcome you, as you. Our work will offer you the opportunity to explore what is troubling you and to understand what really matters to you. We can 'try out' new ways of being and work to connect you more fully to your inner resources. I believe that in ‘coming home to ourselves’ we discover our inner wisdom, strength and healing potential.


Practice description

I started my career as a social worker and have over 15 years of work experience supporting people with feelings of anxiety, depression and a sense of disconnect from themselves and others. This may play out in addictions, relationship problems, stress at work or maybe in general feelings of 'stuckness', numbness or distress.

My therapy training has included 5 years of intensive training in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at The Minster Centre and The Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education. I am currently writing an MA dissertation on what it means to live an ‘unboxed’ life, what this offers us in terms of fluidity, freedom from the ‘rule book’, fostering a healthy relationship with ourselves and what brings meaning to our lives.

Alongside my private practice I work with two charities one supporting single parents, the other working with clients with a positive HIV status.



My first session

You may be feeling anxious, distressed, overwhelmed and alone. You may feel like you don't 'fit' or be searching for 'more'. Wherever you are, or what is motiving your search for a therapist or counsellor I offer a calm space for you to explore your difficulties and find a way through.

Our first session offers us the opportunity to get a feel for what it would be like to work together and understand what you are hoping to gain from therapy at this time in your life. I know this first step can stir many emotions, but I will be there alongside you.

Please get in touch if you are curious to know more.
