“The universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.”

I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor. I work with adults and children.

My approach is to offer empathetic understanding and non-judgmental listening in a safe space.  Everyone is unique and therefore I draw on many different methods to suit each person's needs. My aim is to connect my client with their own inner resources through authenticity and self-empowerment.

I work with individuals, groups and couples - short and long term therapy.

I am UKCP accredited (the professional body that regulates psychotherapists in the UK), DBS cleared and I have regular 1:1 supervision.
