We’re all unique, yet we share some challenges in life. Stress, trauma, loss and fear are just a few that can knock us off course. I see therapy as a way not only of getting you back on track, fast, but helping you to fulfil your potential. When the difficulties of life leave you feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, I can help you to find the first steps to recovery. No one therapy can work for all, so my approach is to build on what works for you, drawing on therapeutic disciplines that best fit your presentation and personality.

Many people seek therapy for all sorts of reasons. The aim of psychotherapy is to help you explore the issues you are experiencing and also help you make sense of your thoughts, feelings and ways of relating to yourself and others. By developing a greater insight, this can help you bring about lasting change.   I work with clients on a short or long term basis, who have experienced a range of issues and circumstances that impact their life.

I work with whoever comes to me but also have special interest in the following groups: Women who may have a nagging feeling that life could be more beautiful. They may feel trapped by past choices or have experienced a wake-up call or final straw such as a bereavement, relationship difficulties, or peri-menopause or menopause difficulties. Teenagers who feel overwhelmed with life. They may find it hard to put their feelings into words or to talk to friends and family. Perhaps they feel tension between what they want and the expectation of others. Trainee counsellors who may be looking forward to therapy, or perhaps the training is

Do you ever feel that your life could be better? Maybe there is not enough satisfaction and joy in your life, maybe you feel stuck, perhaps because you have been unable to create the life you want, or because relationships, either at home or work, seem to repeat in unhelpful ways without resolution. Sometimes these circumstances can interact with anxiety, depression or other difficulties, causing an unhelpful spiral which leave you feeling even less able to make positive change. Contacting a therapist may feel difficult, but it can be the first step towards understanding the blocks preventing you from living the life you want.

I enjoy helping you get a better sense of self and navigate your mental health. I understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming. But anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. I am also looking for therapists requiring supervision, whilst I complete Clinical Supervision training (discounted rate available). This puts the relationship at the heart of our work. Helping you understand how the relationships are affecting you, as well as technicalities and ethics. I have an interest in neurodiversity and am passionate about being in nature.

I believe we are all experts of our own lives - however, sometimes we can lose that feeling of being in control. In the counselling room, the space is yours to explore your path and bring clarity and self awareness to difficult situations, both past and present. When we embark upon this journey, it is led by you, in an environment that I hope provides you with safety and confidence to explore whatever it is you wish, knowing that it is confidential and yours to use however you need.

Together we can unravel thoughts and feelings that might feel really heavy and complex, at a pace that feels safe to you. Each new session is an opportunity for you to go wherever you need to. My role as your counsellor is to encourage you to reflect and help you to connect the dots in an empathic, non judgmental way, to explore and make sense of your inner world which may be reflected in repetitive behaviour patterns that can feel so out of our control. Sessions begin in an opened ended, non structured way to allow space for you to bring what it is you need at that time.

I offer support with relationships, life experiences, personal development and everything in between! Perhaps you want to understand yourself and others better, make sense of a challenging life experience or feel more connected, happier and fulfilled in life! The best place to start may involve thinking more about me than about you! Much has been said about the therapeutic relationship being an important predictor of change, so this is a great opportunity to get to know me to establish if I'm a good-fit for you!

Every person has individual needs and your life experience is unique to you. It can often be difficult to pinpoint what may be causing you distress, but issues including anxiety, low self-esteem, relationships, life events, difficult childhood experiences, loss and bereavement are just a few of the reasons why people seek support through counselling. It is my aim as your counsellor to support you as best I can to empower you and enable you to grow in confidence to realise and understand that you hold the answers. You are the expert of you.

How can I find a therapist in Cheltenham?

Search for nearby therapists or counsellors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or postcode; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
