I first discovered the transformative nature of therapy when I turned 40. Having battled anxiety in various forms over my lifetime, I took the plunge and never looked back.
My therapist was warm and patient, she honoured all my experiences and never judged my thoughts or feelings. These rich qualities inform my own therapeutic practise and values.
I want to share each step of your journey, supporting you as you recover from adversity, heal from pain, and move forward with aspirations and hope for the future.
As a counsellor and psychotherapist, we will explore together the best therapeutic approach for you. I aim to put you in the driving seat by deciding which strategies might resonate with you and support you recovering, growing and thriving.
As a neurodiverse trained practitioner, I aim to provide a space where you can personalise the lighting. I have a huge selection of sensory toys and fidget toys as well as weighted blankets and soft throws. You can choose your preferred seat (including sitting or laying on the floor).
I am proud to be a queer ally and provide a warm welcoming space for all my LGBTQ+ clients.
