About Me

I first realised I wanted to be in a helping role when I volunteered at MIND several years ago. I felt an enormous amount of pleasure 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.

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.


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 work with MIND is ongoing and has given me a wealth of experience. I work with Adults, Young People, Couples/Families and I'm also trained in Bereavement Counselling.

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.
