Welcome to your journey toward healing

Taking the first step towards finding the right counsellor can feel daunting, but rest assured, you’re not alone in this journey. I’m here to help you navigate through the uncertainties of seeking support.

Building Trust and Understanding

In our therapeutic relationship, trust is paramount. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can feel heard, understood, and accepted. Together, we’ll embark on a journey towards healing, at a pace that feels comfortable and empowering for you.

My background

I am a qualified Gestalt Counselor with specialized training in Psychosexual Therapy and Eating Disorders My extensive clinical experience spans across various settings including the NHS, voluntary organizations, and both public and private sectors. Additionally, I’ve spent years working as a qualified Social Worker in Adult Social Services, gaining insight into the unique challenges faced within the caring profession.


Understanding Your Struggles

Having walked diverse paths in my career, I understand the complexities of everyday life and the struggles we encounter. My journey into counseling was born out of a personal transformation sparked by my own experiences in therapy. This led me to shift gears from customer service to a career dedicated to helping others in a more profound and meaningful way.

Continuous Growth and Development

Passionate about mental health and well-being, I continually seek to expand my knowledge and skills. From Mental Health First Aid Instructor Training to Gravity Yoga Instructor training, I’m committed to providing holistic support that addresses the mind-body connection.

Specialized Therapeutic Approaches

I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, an evidence-based practice recognized by organizations such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and The World Health Organization (WHO) for its effectiveness in treating trauma.

Your Journey to Wholeness

Above all, I believe in the transformative power of finding helpful ways to manage life’s challenges. Together, we’ll explore techniques and strategies tailored to your unique needs, empowering you to rediscover a sense of self-compassion, resilience, and well-being.
