About me

About me

I originally come from an arts background. For many years I worked as a classical singer before making my decision to train as a therapist.

My training began with an advanced certificate in counselling skills and theory, continuing with a BA (Hons) degree. In 2008,  I initiated a now thriving counselling practice in a busy NHS medical centre, where I began my counselling practice working with clients presenting with a very wide range of issues.

I work with individuals and couples and I have undertaken further training at COSRT to support my work with the latter. In my practice, I regularly support adult survivors of childhood abuse and trauma and have considerable understanding of working with complex PTSD. I also have significant experience of supporting clients who are struggling with problematic behaviour, including disordered eating, excessive internet use, sexual compulsivity, love addiction and co-dependency, and clients who work the Twelve-Step programme.  I have had further training in working with clients who are experiencing insomnia.

I work with clients who are experiencing work related anxiety, especially those who regularly give presentations  where there is an expectation to perform with confidence.

I welcome the opportunity to work with gay and lesbian clients and I have experience of working with clients who have issues surrounding gender identity.beach-zen-stone-pile

In my work with emerging adults, I feel able to engage with your reality on a wide range of issues, and to offer you a space in which to safely explore any difficulties that you are experiencing.

I am a fully accredited member of the BACP, having completed a rigorous post-qualification process. I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.  I continue to support all of my work and to increase my knowledge and understanding with ongoing training.
