Together we get curious, promoting self exploration, a greater awareness allowing healing and connection, a powerful level of acceptance, purpose and worth. As an integrative practitioner I draw from multiple therapeutic models offering Counselling, Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy separately or combined, to meet individual needs. As a school counsellor I both offer an integrative and neuro diverse approach, therapy in accordance to developmental stage. Sessions also draw from attachment and trauma based psychology informing play based therapy.
I am passionate about nurturing connection providing opportunities to share and express makings sense of thoughts, feelings and behaviour, understanding self, creating a platform of nurture, raising esteem, learning to turn the stress dial down, moving forward with updated.
I also have many years experience delivering well-being workshops and interventions, previously working as a youth worker, and adult mental health advocate.

I absolutely understand how daunting it can be searching for the right counsellor, alongside the prospect of looking at the feelings that cause the greatest fear. I have experienced living with high anxiety, fear and with a constant feeling of not being good enough. Similarly I have experienced therapy, being sat in the opposite chair, as client, going through the exploration process and finding my inner calm, connecting with confidence, positive self talk, esteem and acceptance, that I am good enough.
It helps too, to have a greater understanding of what to expect.
So the first session, the initial consultation, generally takes around an hour, it is an information gathering session. Together we build a picture so to create an individualised therapeutic plan. The first appointment is also the first step in getting to know each other, empathically creating a safe space, for you, to ask any questions, discuss any concerns and talk freely. If you wish to move forward with a therapeutic plan, further sessions will take place, ideally weekly and last for approximately 50 minutes.
If you would like to find out more, ask any questions or discuss moving forward with a personalized plan, please do not hesitate to contact, I look forward to hearing from you.
