About

We might all experience times in our life when we're struggling to cope, and when we do, talking our problems through with someone who understands us can be just the thing that lifts the weight from our shoulders and allows us to find a new path forward. Although I try to shy away from labels and diagnosis, I've helped people suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, relationship and anger management issues, and more. It's vital that you feel comfortable talking to your counsellor, and so I offer a half price first session to help you decide if I'm the right person for you.
I am a person-centred counsellor, using empathy, a non judgemental attitude and genuineness to allow you to explore whatever it is that's troubling you. I aim to create a relationship where you feel safe to talk things through, especially when those things can be hard to talk about with friends or family.
Besides my private practice, I am a facilitator on a counselling training course and until recently I worked in a secondary school in Reading. Outside of counselling I enjoy writing and poetry, and like to bring my creative side into my work using metaphors. I'm passionate about the environment, and aware of how the wider world can impact our mental health.
