About me.

Having grown up in a single parent household after my parents divorced when I was young, I grew used to seeing the complexities of human relationships first hand. I knew what it was like to grow up in an environment of stress and financial hardship and the huge impact different communication styles and generational differences can have on the wider family structure and stability.

I learnt how important it was to adapt, to be resilient and to often silence my own needs. I learnt to be a good listener and develop empathy. My first experience of therapy was as a young teenager when I entered foster care for a short period of time. My counsellor provided a reliable support for me that was so desperately needed at that time, which helped me to understand the situation better and helped me to feel less alone.

It was another 10 years after that before I embarked on therapy again this time to support me through my mother’s early death from cancer. After the traumatic death of my mother, shortly preceded by the death of both my grandparents and the complicated grieving process that followed, I knew that life was short and I finally embarked on the training I had spent years talking about to be a counsellor. The role I have now and the job I was born to do.

I am an open and honest therapist who likes to do things differently.

I have my clients best interest at the heart of everything I do.

Having qualified in 2012, I have many years experience working with clients. I am an extremely professional therapist, highly empathetic to my clients needs and feel hugely privileged to work with my clients and do the work I do.

I know the world we are living in right now can feel a little upside down and you may be struggling to find your place in it. That’s ok, I’ve got you, I’m here to help because I get it.

Though I may not have experienced exactly what you’re going through, I can be there with you to work through your challenges. I offer my clients a safe space to be themselves, to be heard and to make the changes they need to be more satisfied.
