About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for visiting my page.  I'm a qualified counsellor working with both adults and children (age groups 10- 18). I use an integrative method, allowing a combination of therapeutic approaches, which meets each individual's needs.

In order to grow a genuine, honest relationship with my clients, I use an empathic and confidential safe space, allowing my client to fully explore whilst I listen to their concerns non-judgementally. When we are heard and understood it is easier to come to a clearer understanding and greater acceptance of our self.  With this understanding and acceptance, we are able to grow and heal. All sessions are at the client’s pace and fully client led. My role is to offer support and methods of working in.

Practice description


I have a wealth of experience of working with loss, bereavement, anxiety, depression, postnatal depression and other mental health conditions. Alongside my private practice, I have worked in education, providing therapy to children and parents presenting with trauma, depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues, abuse, ADHD, Autism and other difficulties these issues may bring for the client. I have also worked as a perinatal therapist within the NHS providing support for clients during the perinatal period on a range of complex issues.

I am trained in DBT skills - Dialectical Behaviour Therapy - which is used to treat mood disorders.  I also run weekly DBT groups. This is about working to increase the emotional and cognitive regulation and learning the prompts that lead to our reactive states and assessing the right coping skills to apply to thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This helps to avoid undesired reactions and learning to control emotions rather than them running the show.

Alongside this, I have a wealth of experience of previously working for a multi-national company and a full awareness of the stresses such work/home-life balance can bring.

My first session


I appreciate how difficult making the first move to talk to someone can be, this can create an anxiety in itself. It is key for the relationship between client and therapist to be right for the session to be of benefit. For this reason, I am happy to answer any questions via email or have a 15-minute talk on the telephone  or zoom to allow you to see if I am the right person for you.

Having navigated our way through covid we are now faced with the changing way of the world with an increase in the cost of living.  This for many will heighten anxiety as people try to gain some understanding of our new way of being in our world.   Some people will feel isolated or potentially anxious about this different way of life.  You are not alone - I am able to provide face to face, online video call or telephone counselling to work through any concerns that may arise for you.  Sessions will be held in the same way on an agreed day and time.
