I have over 20 years experience working with adults who have experienced traumatic histories, difficulties in relationships, a complex world within their minds, troubling voices, intrusive thoughts, losses, low mood, frustrations, anxieties, who might have learned to cope in ways that can attract all kinds psychiatric diagnoses. I work with people who might have tried particular models of talking therapy before but may have found they need a tailored approach to understanding their troubles. I often see people who are not clear about what is troubling them or what they want, but require a safe space in which clarity might emerge.

I work with adults as well as children from the age of ten upwards.
As an art psychotherapist, sessions are not reliant on verbal communication. It's often difficult to put into words how we are feeling and thinking. Through the creative and nurturing medium of art, I help you to engage with your senses and offer the opportunity to use materials to reconnect mind and body. Art materials help with discharging difficult feelings and exploring deep emotions. I aim to empower my clients to make positive steps in between sessions by providing creative strategies that can be use day to day. Although my training is in the creative arts, I also offer traditional talking therapy. ​

Traumatic life events can create sudden, urgent need for support. Equally, therapy can be a positive, planned act of self care, facing old wounds or barriers to growth and happiness. 17 years practice with young people, adults, couples and families has taught me that everyone has unique experiences and needs. Therefore my approach is integrative, tailored to each client and draws on 7 years training which includes psychodynamic psychotherapy, solution focused therapy, CBT, DBT, trauma focused and humanistic counselling. I am committed to providing a positive, rewarding and life enhancing experience for both clients and supervisees.

I offer counselling and psychotherapeutic work for adults, couples, young people, children and groups.
I aim to offer a service which is as unique as you are! We all experience life in different ways and I do not believe that there is a one fits all solution that works for everyone. My belief is that we are the only experts on ourselves and that we do have all the resources we need to be happy and fulfilled in our lives, for some of us we just don’t know it yet or maybe we have just lost the confidence to believe in ourselves. I welcome you to explore and challenge your beliefs and values to help you find the best way in life for you, the one that fits and allows you to work towards that wonderful goal of being you again

There are times in our lives when we notice that we don’t feel ok and that we need to move from that place, but don’t know how. In these times, counselling can offer a safe, private and confidential space to notice and share anything which doesn’t feel ok. It offers room to take care of and notice ourselves. Only you can know best. I feel that through the relationship of counsellor and client we can work to notice or re-notice yourself. We might also find new ways of learning to cope with the pressures of life, or re-find old ways of supporting yourself that you have forgotten. I work with children, teenagers and adults

Are you pre-occupied with thoughts and feelings of worry about what may be? Or you may be pulled back to past experiences that you can't change, but can't quite let go of. These often go hand in hand, and can lead to overwhelm and difficulty to be present and enjoy the here and now. It can really help to give this space, to mindfully consider your past and to calm the worry that is trying to protect you. Wherever you are in life's journey there is great benefit from taking time to notice your thoughts and feelings, to find choices and peace among that which you can't control.

Sometimes life can feel difficult and overwhelming, or you might feel that you need to make changes in your life and you are finding it difficult to deal with these things by yourself.

I offer you a calm space in which to do this and will welcome you with warmth and understanding.

I work as a Cognitive & Mindfulness Based psychological trainer. I train people in how to enhance their self-belief for: resilience, motivation, managing pressure & performance related emotions. Pressure in life, as in high-demand or performance environments is a certainty & how we perceive pressure determines our response. We can choose how to think about pressure, but this depends on our levels of self-belief, which is an essential ingredient when navigating demanding situations. In these environments we need access to skills to strengthen & take care of our mental fitness & mental health. We can train these skills with support.
