About me

I approach therapy with optimism and hope, working with couples and individuals offering a supportive space to help create the possibility of change. 

My professional background

I trained at Matrix College of counselling and psychotherapy in Norwich, and hold a BSc (Hons) in Integrative Counselling from Middlesex University. I am accredited with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and registered with BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, but not limited to: 

You may be struggling with:

  • Anxiety and panic

  • Depression

  • Physical, sexual, emotional abuse issues

  • Bereavement, loss and life transitions

  • Low self worth and confidence

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Single or multiple incident trauma

  • PTSD and complex PTSD

  • Questioning your relationship with alcohol or drugs

  • Body image issues

  • Life transitions and menopause

  • Stress and overwhelm

  • Disordered eating

  • Feeling lost, unsure or nothing feels quite right 

  • Workplace stress and burnout

  • Medical diagnosis and long-term illness

In my private practice, I have worked extensively with adults and couples. I am a trauma informed therapist, working with individuals and for various emergency and frontline services, including Police and veterans experiencing PTSD and trauma. I have a commitment to ongoing professional development in this field.

Prior to working in private practice, I worked with the One to One project in Kings Lynn, domestic abuse charities, and as a counsellor for a leading charity and delivered workplace training on mental health issues.

Like many others, I have faced challenges in life, which allows me to bring a genuine and accepting presence to my practice. If you are facing your own personal challenges, it can help to talk to someone who still understands what it feels like to begin such a journey, who will support you when life is at its most difficult and will help you achieve lasting, positive change in your life.
