About Me

I'm a qualified and experienced counsellor who has also trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT.) No one should have to face a mental health problem alone and within my work, I cover a range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem/low confidence and relationships. I find it incredibly rewarding working with clients and seeing them progress through the process of therapy. 

Beginning therapy can be a big step towards being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible. No matter what challenges you may be facing, through therapy you can change self-destructive behaviours and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships and more.

I offer a compassionate service allowing you to share your concerns in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.  Together we will build a therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable and safe enough to explore your experiences and difficulties with me. We will work through your thoughts and feelings and through our counselling sessions you will be provided with the opportunity to gain the tools you need to encourage growth and move towards change.

Alongside my own private practice, my previous work with MIND has given me a wealth of experience. I work with adults, young people, couples and families.

I hope this website has given you a sense of what I can offer, but please do feel free to contact me for a chat on 07756 696247 if you wish to discuss anything further or send me an email via the Contact Form on this website.
