About me and my therapy practice

I offer individual counselling for a range of issues. Counselling can help us when we may feel not good enough, stuck and when life can feel over whelming, throwing unexpected challenges our way. Counselling offers a safe and supportive space to talk and process worries, to be listened to without judgement and a chance to feel heard and understood with someone 'walking' by your side  helping to unpick those difficult thoughts and feelings.

I work with teenagers and adults outdoor, face to face and online in private practice. I have over 20 years experience working in schools, youth settings supporting children, families and staff in wellbeing roles and as a qualified counsellor for 4 years. I offer individual counselling incorporating traditional face to face from a room in the city centre, outdoor and creative therapy.

Practice description

In my practice I offer a safe, warm and non-judgemental space to both adults, teenagers and young people through face to face, outdoor therapy, online and telephone. I have experience of working with SEND, complex needs and trauma and draw on this experience to help support clients.

Face to Face

I offer face to face from a comfortable therapy space in Leicester city centre. As an integrative therapist I draw on a variety of therapeutic models and adapt my sessions to meet the individual needs of the client. 

Outdoor Therapy

Outdoor therapy offers the chance for the client to be outside for their therapy sessions and take in nature as part of the therapy. It can involve walking, sitting or a combination of both. It can be particularly regulating being able to walk side by side for some, as an alternative to being in a room. The outdoor sessions are in a local nature based area easily accessible. 

Young People sessions 

Young people sessions are very adaptable and can be in the room or outdoors. They are led by what the young person is comfortable with and needs, working at a pace that suits them to build trust and feel secure. Incorporating e.g. creative ideas, talking,  therapeutic cards and drawing are just some examples to help the young person reach the feelings they may want to convey in the sessions. 


I use the Teams app for online sessions. 

My first session

I offer an initial free 15 minute consultation to clients to chat about what you would want to gain from sessions, a chance to find out a bit more about each other and importantly whether you feel I am the right therapist for you, as well as whether we feel we can work together.

First sessions are a way to find out more. I may ask more questions in a first session than a regular session as a way of getting to know the client and meet their individual needs moving forward.
