About me and my therapy practice


I am a qualified counsellor and a member of BACP. I offer a compassionate, non-judgemental, empathic and warm confidential environment to enable you to feel safe enough to self-explore. With me, you can be your true self and be honest about how you are really feeling.

Feeling truly heard and understood can be a powerful experience. By being in tune with how you are feeling and by understanding your experiences, I will support you so that you can see a way forward and work towards a growing sense of inner peace and contentment, with more focus and clarity.

Believing that you are the only expert in yourself, my aim is to support and empower you to make changes that you feel are suited to you. I will ensure that you feel sessions maintain direction and focus, empowering you to review your progress regularly, always holding your autonomy in mind. My way of working is gentle but sufficiently challenging to help you grow and ensuring that I work at a pace that suits you.

I use the person-centred approach as a basis of my counselling practice and bring in a wide range of therapies including CBT, Gestalt, to ensure that my approach is flexible and tailored to the needs of each individual. This is based on the idea that each person is an individual and unique so one type of therapy doesn't fit everyone.

My varied life experiences I have had, accompanied by the experience of working with clients presenting a wide variety of mental health difficulties, informs my practice.

If you are thinking about counselling but are nervous or unsure about the process, I offer a free 20 minutes telephone consultation - an opportunity for you to discuss what you would like from counselling and any questions you may have.

I work on a short-term and long-term basis with clients from a variety of different backgrounds. I am passionate about my work with clients and I am committed to providing a professional and ethical service.
