About me and my therapy practice

I Am a person centred counsellor but enjoy working with an integrative approach, but always putting your needs first. 

I enjoy working creatively with your permission, using art as part of the therapeutic process

I work at a pace suitable to you to help you work through whatever you are struggling with.

I work from home, face to face, online and also offer walk and talk sessions, I love the outdoors and have found my walk and talk sessions to be really helpful.

I am a qualified mindfulness practitioner and enjoy incorporating that into my work.

i come from and art and design background, often my clients enjoy working creatively to express their feelings.

Outside of working hours I love nothing more than being outside wild swimming, walking and cycling.
