My Background

I have experience in a number of different areas including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, trauma and abuse, neurodiversity, disability and chronic health issues, and difficulties with food/body image. I have a particular interest in self-esteem and how our relationship with ourselves can affect other parts of our life. 

I completed my training in person-centred and psychodynamic counselling. As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that you are the expert on yourself, not me. As a psychodynamic counsellor, I am curious about how past experiences can shape the present. I also draw on existential therapy, which holds the human experience at its core

Before training as a counsellor, I worked for 10 years in the higher education and charity sectors, helping people of many different identities, backgrounds, and experiences. I have also held voluntary positions as a Childline Counsellor, student mentor, and therapeutic horseback riding assistant. 

I believe that we are all different and that there is no single approach that suits everyone. I therefore work from an integrative perspective, and always keep an open mind towards anything you may bring. 



As part of abiding by the BACP ethical framework, I take ongoing personal and professional development seriously, participating in regular further training and clinical supervision. You can read more about the ethical framework I follow on the BACP website. 

I am an existing member of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme with Membership for Adults and Children. 

I am additionally registered with the Information Commisioner's Office (ICO). My Privacy Policy explains how I use and store your data.
