Perhaps you’re considering therapy and have questions regarding the process or maybe you are searching for a psychotherapist for someone you care about. It may feel like a risk when you open yourself up to ask for help. I want to acknowledge and honour the moment of vulnerability as a strength. Life is challenging and you don’t have to go through it alone.
As a Counsellor Psychotherapist I employ a Humanistic approach to counselling. I encourage self-awareness and self-realisation in an individual. I believe people have within themselves all the resources they need to lead healthy and fulfilled lives. As a counsellor I see myself helping clients to discover and access within themselves the restricted resources they need to solve problems. Helping the client safely find their way to the solution. I believe in the best interests of the client at all times and treat everyone with dignity and respect in a non-judgemental authentic approach.

I am a qualified Holistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I work with clients collaboratively, with empathy and without judgement. I provide a safe space where we can explore, with open curiosity, the issues that have led you to bravely seek counselling. I believe that all people have the wise and wonderful resources they need within, from where healing and harmony can come. Therapy can provide an opportunity to access these inner resources, from where you can begin to find healing, ease of being, and develop new ways of thinking, being and living.
My experience of working in a psychiatric hospital in London, together with my subsequent extensive management experience with a large global organisation, where a key part of my role involved mentoring and coaching people in developing their careers, prompted me to embark on her career as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My holistic approach to counselling facilitates opportunities for clients to explore their feelings in a non-judgmental, and safe environment. In this therapeutic partnership, I facilitate clients as they identify and manage strong feelings such as anger or anxiety, grief, loss relationship problems, depression.
I work on a one to one basis in a non-judgemental, collaborative, emphatic way, encouraging and empowering my clients to develop their own self- awareness, self-belief, self-esteem, and self-confidence, in order for my clients to become less anxious, happier, more self-fulfilled, and to reach their full potential
As a therapist I have attended my own counselling throughout the years and I understand how difficult it is to take those first steps as a client. So well-done in taking the first steps in to therapy. You can expect a warm welcome from me, in a non-judgement, safe space where you will receive empathy and understanding, kindness and compassion. You don’t have to be alone.
With experience in a wide range of issues such as anxiety, addiction, assertiveness, bereavement, couples counselling, depression, group facilitation, relationships, stress, suicide intervention, sexual issues and more. I offer a therapeutic counselling approach tailored to the individual needs of the client.
To me, therapy isn’t just about looking at the problems but also finding the solutions. It’s about learning to take back control of your life so you find your unique road towards self-acceptance, contentment and success. I have a great passion for my profession and I believe that my knowledge and expertise could be useful to those who crave the desire to change but are unsure of the steps to take to achieve this. And while you must walk this path of change on your own, I will support you every step of the way until you will manage it independently.
Have you finally got to that point in your struggle with anxiety that you really want to deal with it? If you are, I’m here to help you. Together we can help you make the journey out of your anxiety. I can help you manage your anxious thoughts more effectively, by reducing your levels of anxiety and enjoy life without worrying all the time.
Therapy offers individuals emotional and mental tools to resolve troublesome emotions, painful memories and distracting and recurring negative thoughts. In addition, by working towards achieving your own personal goals and overcoming internal and external obstacles, you increase your self-awareness and promote personal growth.

Life has a habit of leaning too heavily on us at times and for longer than expected. After trying many ways to break through form the dis-ease, sadness, grief, anger, pain, fear, or trauma, trying so hard to be ok you realise "I need support". That inner knowing is calling out for change or someone to hear what has been happening for you. I would like to offer you time, a safe space to be heard and together we will develop a relationship which allows you to say what you have kept in your heart for so long and open space for your heart to heal. “We will trace the thread of life, find the knot and untangle it” Martha Ostenso

I’ve always had a natural curiosity about people and an empathy for others which is most likely the reason why I chose to work in the area of Counselling and Psychotherapy. There is something very special about witnessing someone grow and develop their understanding of themselves. The therapeutic relationship formed with clients is one I hold with high regard and is both a delicate and powerful piece of our work together. My hope in our sessions is to facilitate a safe space for clients to heal and integrate all parts of themselves.
