About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes we need to make changes in order to improve our lives. Sometimes this thought alone can feel overwhelming, it’s difficult to even know where to start. Our thoughts can become overwhelming, leaving us feeling disconnected, isolated and lonely.  Hearing our thoughts out loud, with a professional, can be an opportunity to gain some clarity and begin the process of change. 

I am an experienced, resourceful and optimistic counsellor.  I believe small changes in the way we think can make a big difference to the way we feel. I work with individuals, couples and teenagers. 

It can be really helpful to talk things through; to hear your thoughts out loud, in private, with a professional; someone who is caring, accepting and responsive without being emotionally involved.  Whatever is troubling you, my aim is to help untangle the knot and clear a path to a more peaceful and fulfilling future.

I have worked in various settings: as mental health professional for a charity, lead counsellor in a large GP practice and student counsellor within primary, secondary and university settings.  My work with adults covers individuals and couples.  I've experience of teenagers suffering stress, anxiety, relationships and dysfunctional family lives.

Practice description

I'm still working online as this has proved to be very effective and gives more flexibility to fit into a convenient time for both of us.  I can however see clients face to face if necessary but there may be longer waiting time.   Please feel free to get in touch and I'll do my best to help with any questions.

My first session

I suggest a short initial session, no fee, to discuss expectations, answer any questions and see whether we feel we could work well together.  This can be via Zoom or phone call.

I look forward to hearing from you.
