About me
Who am I?

As a solo practitioner, my identity and journey lie at the heart of my practice.

Discover yourself

I believe in the healing and transformative power of counselling and want to provide a sanctuary for any who might benefit from it.

You are the expert. My role as counsellor is to help light the way as we help you to connect with the best version of yourself.

About me

My counselling journey began early in life. Ever since I was young, I felt like I did not fit in, that I stood apart from the rest of the world. I found my teenage years challenging as I desperately wanted to find my place, where I could become the person I was meant to be.

Through therapy, and meeting like-minded individuals, I came to recognise that I needn't change to fit the world; in fact, my difficulties came from me suppressing my true self. Once I came to understand myself, I felt like I had come alive.

In my spare time, I enjoy creative pursuits, losing (and sometimes, finding!) myself in fictional worlds, and spending time with my dog, Zelda.

How I work

I believe in shaping counselling relationships unique to each client and their needs. Every person is unique, and only by acknowledging our differences can we truly bring our vision of others into sharp focus.

I work to a high professional standard but believe therapy needn't be intimidating. Learning more about ourselves and making positive steps can be rewarding and I aim to make counselling something to be proud of.

My philosophy

As an integrative counsellor I work with several approaches to create a counselling experience suited to my clients and their needs.

By being seen and heard in a safe environment, we can open the door for you to embrace your inner self and to show it to the world.
