About

Specialist Child, Adolescent & Family Counsellor, Mental Health Professional, CAMHS, NHS. Thank you for clicking on my profile, I’m not sure why you are here, but I wonder if you wish something in your life could be different? Perhaps you or a loved one is struggling with their mental health, maybe there are problems in your important relationships? Looking for help is a sign of strength and I appreciate it can feel scary reaching out for emotional support. If you would like to understand how talking therapy works and the types of support I can provide, please feel free to contact me either by email or the number listed above.
I specialise in working with people who maybe struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, abuse and relationship issues. I help clients to understand and manage their distress, and increase their emotional resilience and achieve more life satisfaction. I have expertise in school refusal, OCD, impact of divorce, childhood abuse, trauma and PTSD.
I have extensive clinical experience of delivering counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, families and groups, working in the NHS, CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), School Counselling Manager for Place2Be, and Relationship/Family Counsellor with Relate, working in schools and community settings.
