Why Seek Therapy?

According to UKCP, trained counsellors and psychotherapists - and those in clinical training - can offer an environment in which you can: 

  • express your feelings

  • gain a deeper insight into the issues you face.

Psychotherapy sessions are confidential. This means that you can talk about things you might not feel be able to discuss with anyone else.

The therapist will aim to help you find better ways to cope, or bring about changes in the way you think and behave to improve your mental and emotional well-being.

Sessions can be:

  • one-to-one

  • include a partner or family members

  • in a group.

Me (In a Nut Shell)

In addition to training as a Psychotherapist, I am a qualified teacher.  As well as classroom teaching, I spent a number of years working with vulnerable children and families and undertook a basic counselling skills course in order for me to better support the people with whom I was working. 

I volunteered as a licensed Time Out for Parents course facilitator and, through this work I became more and more interested in Counselling and Psychotherapy and eventually decided to retrain as a Psychotherapist, gaining my Post Graduate and Advanced Diplomas and working towards my CTA (Certified Transactional Analyst Exam).    I have a passion for supporting people to realise their true worth and full value, and to become the people they were created to become. 


Many things can cause a ‘blip’ in our life journey and I believe that through working together and building a strong therapeutic relationship we can explore these and find healing and restoration. 

Some of the issues with which I work include, but are not limited to:

  • grief and loss

  • child bereavement

  • ASD

  • OCD

  • trauma

  • addiction

  • general bereavement

  • childhood abuse

  • domestic violence

  • infertility

  • miscarriage

  • anxiety

  • fostering

  • anger

  • depression

  • panic attacks

  • anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders

  • memory impairment

  • borderline personality disorder

  • stress

  • long term illness
