About Me

Dog, lake, trees

You might feel daunted or overwhelmed by the thought of starting therapy. You might feel unsure about what to expect or worry about opening up to a complete stranger! Please know that this is completely understandable and normal. We all fear the unknown.

When you're experiencing low self esteem or you're grieving, it can be difficult to express your own needs and to communicate them to the people around you.

Right now things might feel bleak and difficult. I can provide you with a safe, warm and non judgmental space in which I will help you to talk about what is going on for you and to build your confidence so that you can move forwards or make the changes that are right for you and live the life you envision for yourself.

You might ask yourself how simply talking can help but often we don't take the time to reflect on our feelings and therapy can give you an opportunity to step away from the chaos of daily life and to hear your own voice. 

I am a Counsellor but I have also been in therapy so I understand the nerves, apprehension and doubts you might be feeling. I want to reassure you that a warm welcome awaits you.

I qualified as a Counsellor in 2015 and I worked in the NHS and charity sector for several years. I'm also a pet owner  and I have a deep understanding of the pain and sorrow losing your pet can cause. The picture on the right is of our family dog Sheba who died in 2018 and who is still dearly missed. Grieving for your pet can be a hidden grief because people don't tend to talk about or understand this particular loss which can leave you feeling isolated and alone. This is why, as well as general therapy and Bereavement Therapy, I also offer Pet Bereavement Therapy. 

If you have any questions or want to book an initial, free, 20 minutes telephone call in which we can get to know each other and decide whether I'm the right therapist for you, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you :)
