A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life.

Welcome to my website

I am an integrative psychotherapist, which means I tailor therapy sessions to the individual client as each person will need something different. I believe in accepting the person as they are and that everyone has the ability to heal their own life, given the right support. I bring warmth, empathy, creativity and challenge to the therapeutic relationship.

There are many reasons why people seek the support of a therapist. Maybe they are are experiencing problems in their life at work, home or in relationships, and they do not fully understand why. Perhaps they have been through early trauma or traumatic experiences that they are having difficulty processing. 

Sometimes we can be distressed or upset and have no words to explain or describe what is happening. Often the way we behave or act expresses how we feel, even though we may not always realise it. This is even more true for children, who may not have the words or experience to make sense of what is happening to them or others around them.


Sharing experiences, difficulties and feelings with someone who is not connected to your life and is non-judgemental can help you or your child make sense of what has happened or is happening. Psychotherapy or counselling is an ideal space for this.

Speak in confidence

Therapy takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.

A problem shared…

Therapy gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.

Make better, healthier new choices

Working together can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, healthier choices moving forward.
