About me

Feeling nervous, on edge, irritable, restless, and having physical sensations such as a tight chest, tiredness and heart pounding are all signs of being anxious. I have worked in the NHS and private practice for 11 years and have vast experience of helping people with anxiety related issues. At times anxiety can be hard to understand and can be overwhelming. Working together, I can help you make sense of what�s happening and look at resetting the balance.

Having a lack of motivation, being tearful, feeling hopeless, feeling low, guilty, and thinking negative things about yourself are all symptoms of depression. Like anxiety, depression is one of the biggest issues I help people with, and I have done specific NHS recognised training in counselling people with depression.

Many clients bring to therapy issues or difficulties in their relationships. I work with both individuals & couples in helping them improve their relationships. I offer a safe and secure space where couples can explore their difficulties in their relationship and help them make positive changes in their lives.

Alongside working with anxiety and depression a great deal of my work has focused on supporting clients who have suffered abuse. I have helped people who have suffered childhood abuse and people in abusive relationships. My professional approach offers victims a supportive, confidential, secure space to process the trauma. I help clients to work through what happened to them and to promote a future where the abuse doesn�t consume their lives.

Another area I specialize in is bereavement. Loosing someone close can be so hard to come to terms with and can often feel isolating. Having counselling can help you talk through how you feel no matter what. Often bereavement can bring up a lot of confusing conflicting emotions that can be hard to understand. Part of my role is to help you express these emotions and to make sense of them. I have vast experience in this area and have facilitated NHS bereavement therapy groups in the past.


It�s not easy reaching out for support and can be anxiety provoking in itself. My effective, professional, and confidential service has helped hundreds of people over the last 11 years and I�m sure I can help you too. In some ways this is the hardest part of the therapy journey, but why not take that first step and let�s look at making some positive changes in your life.


My background:

I am a BACP accredited counsellor & have worked in mental health for over 16 years and for the last 11 years I have worked as a counsellor in the NHS & private practice. I offer both short term and long-term therapy, I work with adults over the age of 18 and to help make therapy more accessible I provide sessions either online or via telephone.

My approach to therapy is termed �Integrative�. My training in this approach allows me to use elements of different theoretical modals to provide you with the therapy that�s suites you and your needs. Key to my way of working is the Person-centred approach. This is one of the most well-known, clinically proven forms of therapy. Working in this modal puts you, the client at the heart of the therapy. The emphasis is looking at you as an individual rather than a depersonalized collection of �diagnostic� �symptoms�. Alongside the Person-centred approach, I also draw from Existential therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, and elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These other modals can be helpful in exploring our place in the world, what choices we can make about life, looking at our childhood, what might be unconsciously impacting our lives and looking at some practical ways of helping our mental health.

Due to the level of my experience, I am also a qualified clinical supervisor, supervising other therapists in their practice. I work with many therapists in the NHS and private practice, helping therapists develop their skills, alongside ensuring safe, ethical therapy is being provided.
