Reaching out for help takes courage at a time when you might be struggling, feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or generally stuck. My aim is to help you feel comfortable and safe within therapy, to build trust, and help you work through what has led you to reach out.

I offer, with warmth and sensitivity, a confidential and non-judgemental space where we can explore whatever is on your mind. Everyone’s reason for seeking therapy is unique to them. Counselling can help to:

  • gain a greater level of understanding about yourself and your situation
  • improve your well-being and develop new coping strategies
  • process past experiences or future worries so that you can move forwards and feel more in control of your life
  • build your self-esteem, confidence, or personal resilience
  • empower you to make changes to live a more fulfilling or peaceful life 


Through my work as a therapist in a variety of settings within the voluntary and higher education sectors, I have experience of helping clients with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, physical health worries, relationship difficulties or breakdowns, trauma, loss, life transitions, work related issues, neurodiversity, and identity struggles. 

I have a particular interest in helping clients with:

  • issues relating to living with long term health conditions. I have helped clients work through what is going on for them, and develop ways to manage better day to day and live a full life.
  • trauma recovery – trauma might have left you feeling on edge, distressed, numb, confused, or alone. I have supported clients with their recovery from different types of trauma including domestic abuse and sexual violence.
  • work related issues e.g. stress, burnout, bullying and imposter syndrome – this interest stems from having worked for many years in large private and public sector organisations and seeing how the workplace can impact on psychological health.


I am a relationally trained therapist which means I see a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship as key to bringing about change. I work in an integrative way which means I use a range of different counselling theories and techniques depending on the nature of the issue, and will tailor my approach to what might work best to suit your needs.


  • Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Distinction) – University of Leeds
  • Certificates in Counselling Studies – Levels 2 and 3
  • Training to enable me to practise in a holistic trauma informed way
  • I regularly undertake CPD training courses on a broad range of counselling related topics
