About me

I love people – their diversity, quirks, their stories, their triumphs and failures. I will never get tired of humans and what makes each one of us so unique.

I didn't set out to be a Counsellor, I worked for nearly 20 years in the travel industry and ended up in a stressful management role that eventually affected my health. After taking a bit of time off I decided on a career change and initially trained and worked as a Reflexologist. This led to an increasing interest in what shapes us to be who we are and how we manage our lives daily.

Since qualifying as a Counsellor in 2008 and then as a Clinical Supervisor in 2021 I have not looked back and know I am truly in the profession I was meant to be in. I feel privileged when people share their lives with me and honoured that they trust me and the therapeutic relationship we build. I have been described as warm, compassionate, and understanding.

I am an Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Senior Accredited with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS), and I am committed to providing support in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

I use an integrative approach, which has a basis in humanistic/person-centred practice. This means that I might use a variety of methods, theories, and techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Brief Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Transactional Analysis (TA). This integrative framework and my experiential training enable me to work in a way appropriate to your needs.
