About me and my therapy practice

I support clients with a wide range of concerns, but I have a special focus on disability, health issues, anxiety (social and medical) and family trauma. I also have experience working with the creative and performing arts community as well as people in senior leadership roles.

I have lived with Parkinson’s Disease for almost 30 years and the personal therapy I have undertaken along the way has been invaluable, helping me to navigate what has, at times, been a difficult and confusing emotional journey. Moving beyond the trauma, it has also helped me to find fulfilment, meaning and direction in my life. That’s why I decided to train to become a therapist and it’s why I am so passionate about supporting people who find themselves feeling lost and emotionally distressed.

I received my Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling in July 2020. I am a psychotherapist in advanced clinical training and supervision, studying Transactional Analysis.

Practice description

We are all individuals and we all have our own experiences of life. How we navigate its challenges and the level of support we require will be different for all of us. You may have a clear idea of why you want to start therapy or you may wish to start because you feel confused and overwhelmed by emotions you are struggling to identify. Maybe you are looking for one or two sessions to address a very specific issue or maybe you are looking for longer term support. Whatever you are bringing and wherever you are starting from, I am here to help.

Having Parkinson’s does not mean I have all the answers, but it does mean I’ve had to ask myself a lot of the questions. My path with Parkinson’s and the path you find yourself on may not be the same, but working together, with empathy and without judgement, in a safe, supportive and confidential environment, we can explore your concerns and together we can help you to find a way forward that works for you.

My first session

To help you begin, I offer an initial free, no obligation 20-minute phone consultation. I’ll introduce myself and we can talk about what’s on your mind and what you would like to achieve. Then you can decide if you think I’m the right person for you to work with.
