You Deserve to Feel Great. I’m Here to Help.
It can be difficult to make that first step towards seeking support. I aim to build a relationship of trust as I work empathically and non-judgementally.
I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor and have undertaken specialist training in Psychosexual Therapy and Eating Disorders. I have worked within the NHS, voluntary organisations, public and private sector.
I also have years of experience as a qualified Social Worker in adult Social Services Mental Health and Substance Misuse teams. This has given me a good understanding of the stresses and pressure of working within the caring profession; and an empathic understanding of people’s needs
I used to work in the customer service industry but knew that I wanted to be a therapist after my own experience of personal therapy. I came into this field, after becoming a parent made me revaluate the direction my life was going in. I am passionate about what I do, so I continue to develop my knowledge around psychological methods. I am a Mental Health First Aider and Gravity Yoga Instructor, so mental well-being, mindfulness and self-care is something I practice and encourage others to prioritise.
