As a qualified psychotherapist with many years as a mental health nurse, I take a holistic approach and use a variety of techniques that I tailor to suit you. My aim is to help you feel empowered and enable you to become the best version of yourself. This empowerment will help allow you to let go of destructive patterns, behaviours and habits. I will personalise and adapt my services to you and your unique personality. I offer a space that is non-judgemental leaving you free to express your emotions.

Following many years working with people, I am completely fascinated by how the mind and body create physical symptoms and emotional responses. Commonly clients talk about how their health, be it mental or physical, can leave them feeling stuck and by working together, we can help you move on.

As well as more traditional therapeutic techniques such as counselling, I am trained in more modern theories of addressing mental health problems like Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy as well as alternative approaches. Self-healing is a concept very close to my heart and has led me to develop my skills and knowledge of holistic therapies and become qualified as a Reiki Practitioner.


Over my years working in the NHS, I have gained a vast portfolio of mental health experience; this ranges from acute adult mental health inpatient care to community mental health services. I have been fortunate to gain a range of mental health experience, skills and knowledge throughout my
career both in clinical settings and leadership roles.

I have experience working with all age groups but most of my NHS career has been working with children age 6 and up and their families in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). Specifically I managed and led the specialist eating disorder service for children and young people within CAMHS.

Over the years, I have supported many young people and adults with a range of mental and emotional difficulties. Particular experise that I have gained includes working with people that are experiencing:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fear or phobias
  • Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harm
  • Emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • Trauma
  • Grief and Loss
  • Parenting challenges
  • Problems that specifically affect children and young people


I am a Registered Mental Health Nurse and a member of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). I am a qualified EMDR Therapist (Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and received my Level 4 Qualification in September 2023 and subsequently earned my certificated in Child and adolescent EMDR from EMDR Europe. I also have qualifications in some holistic therapies and I am a qualified Reiki Practitioner. I am a member of both the British Complementary Medicine Association (BCMA) and The Healer Foundation.
