About me

I qualified as a counsellor in 2011, completing my Masters in Counselling in 2012. I have worked supporting people for over 22 years in diverse settings, including organisations, private practice and as a counselling trainer/lecturer.


I am also a fully trained counselling supervisor.


I have experience of supporting people with:

  • anxiety

  • depression 

  • bereavement

  • stress

  • trauma

  • relationship issues

  • sexuality

  • loss

  • abuse

  • addiction

  • gender identity

  • low self-esteem

  • relationship diversity

  • and many other issues that seem too difficult to deal with on your own

I believe we are all individual and unique and that each person will need different things from counselling. Primarily, I feel that the most important thing is the relationship between us. Alongside this I use an integrative, person-centred approach, which means we work in a way that best suits you, drawing on various approaches to support you through the counselling process. 

I aim to provide a safe, empathic, affirming space for you to reflect and explore your own understanding and ways forward.
