The most important element of counselling is the connection you have with your counsellor. I know how important it is for you to feel heard, validated, and aligned with the person you are choosing to trust. I started training as a therapist seven years ago, in my early twenties, as I wanted to help people in a more in depth way. I have since then enjoyed helping a wide range of people from all walks of life get to a better psychological and emotional pIace, with most of my experience focussing on working with children & young adults (9-30).

Counselling can provide you with much needed clarity when life seems full up, with no room left to think. As a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist I provide a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space to explore issues that you are facing, to look more closely at the impact that these are having in your life and to begin to gain new perspectives. As an integrative practitioner I am able to work flexibly with you, with my work being informed by different approaches including Gestalt, Person-centred, Psychodynamic and CBT. This means that I am able to work in a way that will best suit your individual needs.

Clients of all ages come to me with a range of issues and experiences – family difficulties, loss, anxiety, low mood, trauma … and just as often with more general feelings of unease and isolation that can be hard to pin down with words. Clients often appreciate space to reflect on their identity and their place in the world. One of the greatest privileges in my work is to support families working through past and present hurts to heal relationships, through empathy and authentic communication. I am experienced in working with foster carers and children in care.

I'm an integrative counsellor, which means that I don't believe there is a one size fits all approach when it comes to therapy. So whether you prefer structured CBT or to express yourself through the arts I will tailor therapy according to your needs. I have years of experience working with both women and young people, having worked for respected charities like Women's Aid (as a Domestic abuse specialist) and Off the Record. I have a good understanding of the issues that specifically effect these groups, and I feel passionate about enabling both to have their voices heard.

I work online and face to face with adults and adolescents. I have a particular interest in trauma; PTSD and C-PTSD, addictive behaviours and coping mechanisms and their link to childhood trauma; 'ACE's' (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and how these affect survivors as adults. Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse, car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level.

I know how difficult it can be to make a change and to start therapy. Some of us are not used to asking for help, perhaps we tell ourselves that we’re not worth anyone’s time. Or perhaps there is something that has been unspoken for a long time. If you are looking for your children then it can be so difficult to know who is best suited to help them through their issues. For all those looking for counselling I will try to make the first steps easy by offering a free half an hour to talk over the phone to discuss your needs. If we agree on making a start (short-term or open ended), we can move through the sessions at your pace.

I enjoy working with clients who are feeling they have lost "their selves", and love helping them rediscover who they are or who they would like to become. Sometimes this presents as depression or anxiety, or confusion about them and their place in their world. Sometimes this is because of past experiences, families or questions about race, gender, sexuality or spirituality.
