Whatever your reason for reaching out, I will offer you a warm and caring space to be listened to and understood. With gentle support, I will help you make sense of the worries, hurts, losses, betrayals, experiences and emotions that are causing you distress. We will work together collaboratively to sort things out, create persepective, review options and help you find your way forward. I will value you for exactly who you are as a unique and complex individual and empower you to understand your strengths and increase your confidence.

I have experience of working with stress, anxiety, panic, OCD, self-esteem, childhood neglect and abuse, bullying and domestic abuse. My particular expertise is working with confidence and self-esteem, relational difficulties and shame, complex childhood trauma and post traumatic stress. I believe it is an honour to work with people from all walks of life who are looking for a safe space to share and validate these experiences, and a positive step towards healing.

I offer both online and face to face sessions in the quiet comfortable therapy space at Soul Fire Studios, Nether Edge S7. To help us decide if we would like to work together, I offer a free initial consultation. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society. I hold full professional indemnity insurance.
