About

Counselling is very normal, and completely transformational at the same time. I offer you a safe, confidential space to be you. Here we can explore what is troubling you, what's working for you and what isn't; who you are, and what you want out of life. Give yourself the time to simply sit down, breathe and talk freely. I am a warm, thoughtful, sensitive, and empathic therapist, and I bring compassion, intuition, creativity, humour, and an eye for life’s details into my practice. Alongside my formal training I draw from a broad life experience including motherhood, travel, a career in cake design, and my own therapeutic journey.
My core training is in Transactional Analysis (TA), and I use an integrative approach based upon what will best work for you. TA is a humanistic and compassionate theory that supports you to improve your relationships, communication, work life, personal anxieties, and account for the past. I provide support and challenge to help you grow, and make changes.
Research shows that the relationship between therapist and client is the most important factor in determining therapeutic outcomes. With this in mind, I offer a reduced fee initial appointment (£25 for 60 minutes) so that we can discuss what you'd like help with, and see if we are a good fit. Email, phone or message me to arrange an initial session.
