Philosophy and style of working:
You need to know you are in supportive and trustworthy hands. I therefore offer a warm, gentle, patient and caring manner, through which a safe and secure environment is established.
Because the relationship between client and counsellor is so crucial, I spend real time, commitment and effort developing that relationship, working collaboratively with you throughout.
I am a humanistic therapist – my approach blends person-centered counselling skills with an existential worldview. Jargon aside, in simple terms this means I provide an empathic, non-judgmental space where you are respected and made comfortable as we explore your world.
This deep exploration encourages you to make better sense of your life through looking at your thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Training and Experience:
I have been working in private practice for three years. As well as my practice, which covers three counties, I offer a counselling service for a charity which provides accommodation and support to homeless and unemployed young people aged 16-30.
Further experience includes work at a hospice providing care for terminally ill people, their carers and their families. I have also previously worked as a school counsellor for a year, and stints at two other counselling charities.
I trained at the University of Greenwich for four years, completing my BA in 2020.
