I practice in a non-judgemental way which is individual to each client. My aim is to empower you and help you to live your most fulfilling life by encouraging you to recognise your inner resources and strength and to support your emotional wellbeing. I will work with you to help you to explore your thoughts and feelings and gain valuable new perspectives about yourself and your situation and to give you a greater sense of control and choice in your life.

Hello and a warm welcome to my profile. I am an Integrative Counsellor and my goal as a therapist is to provide a safe non-judgemental space, where my counselling clients can feel encouraged and supported through life’s challenges. Whatever you are going through, whether it is depression, anxiety, relationship problems, family problems, separation or divorce, emotional difficulties or bereavement, there is hope. I have extensive experience counselling in the third sector as well as general counselling practise in a GP surgery. I offer weekly counselling sessions face-to-face and online via Skype and telephone.
Do you feel stuck? Are you having panic attacks or feeling numb and detached? Are you avoiding places and people, short tempered and on edge all the time? Do you feel overwhelmed by intense feelings that remind you of something that happened a long time ago? Are you struggling to sleep, having dreams and nightmares? Maybe you are experiencing what is often described as trauma or PTSD. Events such as childhood abuse, bullying, assaults in adulthood, car accidents, domestic violence - all can lead to symptoms and responses that result in you being stuck in the past.
It can often be daunting taking the step to start therapy and begin a journey of change. Sometimes this fear can hold us back. I provide a free 15-minute consultation with clients to provide an opportunity to explore whether I am the right psychologist for you and to answer any questions about the therapy process.
You may be experiencing high levels of anxiety, making it hard to function in your everyday life. You may have feelings of sadness, guilt, shame or anger and not know how to manage distressing emotions. You may have experienced trauma and feel that recovery is impossible. Whatever it is you’re feeling, thinking and experiencing, you don’t have to face it alone. I offer a space that’s safe to explore aspects of your life that may be painful, distressing or confusing.
I work with people who are looking to feel better and find more enjoyment in life. My clients may be experiencing specific difficulties such as stress, depression or anxiety, caused by demands of work, school or university or relationship challenges. Alternatively they may be struggling to make sense of life, looking to find a purpose or create change in one or more areas of their life. Some clients come for counselling as a form of personal or self-development, realising the importance of maintaining their emotional and mental wellbeing in the midst of all the various demands on their time and energy.
I work with couples, individuals and students from yr6 upwards. My training allows me to support clients to change, by raising their awareness of what they're doing and the effect of their choices on them and others. The main areas I look at are communication, how they listen and respond to others and why they respond in that way. Once the client is aware of where the response is coming from they can begin to adjust it, to fit the situation in front of them. I work with couples and children experiencing separation and loss either now or in the past, and help them to understand and regulate their feelings.
Perhaps you have reached a point where you know things have to change? Maybe you feel stuck in a cycle of repetitive and destructive relationship patterns? You might be feeling as though you don't belong or fit in anywhere. Maybe you are confused by your experience of life and find it difficult to understand why you behave and react the way you do. You may have a sense that there is something ‘wrong’ with you but can’t pinpoint what that is. You might feel stuck in a revolving door with support you are currently getting; maybe you consider NHS services don't understand or can't help you to move forward?
