About Me 

I have extensive clinical training and experience treating a diverse range of issues that have required both long and short term therapy. This experience includes working with bereavement and loss, trauma, sexual abuse, addictions, dual diagnosis, eating disorders, self-harming behaviour, relationship problems, corporate burnout, depression, and anxiety. 

Through the process of personal psychotherapy, I have worked through deep emotional wounds and past trauma. I possess an extremely deep level of empathy and truly understand how difficult it can be to reach out and ask for support. I have first-hand experience regarding the healing power of a trusting therapeutic relationship.  I have come to love and respect myself realising that my life experiences, even the very dark times, have helped me to become the therapist and person I am today.

As a registered accredited member of the National Counselling Society, I adhere to solid ethical and practical guidelines. I keep up-to-date with new research and practice, undergo regular continued professional development and attend fortnightly clinical supervision. I have an enhanced DBS and my practice is covered by comprehensive indemnity insurance.
