I come from place of thoughtful and non judgemental understanding. This is priority. This is powerful. All too often it is something that was, and perhaps still is, missing from our lives.

I’m dedicated to empowering women. There are times in all our lives when specialist support is crucial. Again, it was/is often absent in our lives. I offer you a safe space so you can allow yourself to let go, even just a little. This is often a complete revelation for women, who are often in the position of supporting and caring for everyone else.

My professional focus is to understand the psychological aspects of mental & emotional distress within the context of women’s lives. This is my chosen niche and my area of expertise. I dedicate all my continued professional development (CPD) to the study of women’s psychology and their mental, emotional and physical wellness.

Understanding Women

Many of the women I work with were brought up to look after & prioritise the needs of others. For the last decade I have prioritised my professional experience to understanding the intricate needs of women. Addressing the unmet needs in women’s emotional / mental health is the focus of my daily work.

My specialism continues to deepen my understanding of the conscious and unconscious processes of women, which means I can better attune to the unique challenges and experiences that women face in life.

Simply put, I specialise in counselling women because I feel it is where my heart firmly lies, it is what I ‘know’ in my bones, the specific (as opposed to general) CPD makes me a better counsellor for women, I love it (which reduces my risk of burn out), and... I think my clients would say that I’m very good at it.

Please feel welcome to get in touch with me.
