About Me

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to study counselling. I am a fully qualified counsellor working both privately and volunteering within the NHS. I adhere to the BACP code of ethics.  

I am committed to the well-being of all my clients and their needs while dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives.  I provide short-term and long-term counselling to help you process difficult feelings, feel heard and supported so that you can re-discover your identity, creativity and start moving forward with your life.

I work in an integrative way.  This means that I draw on various therapeutic approaches and strategies in order to adapt to you as an individual while working with depression, hopelessness, anxiety, fear and the following issues.   

Areas of counselling I deal with:

  • Affairs and betrayals

  • Attachment disorder

  • Body dysmorphic disorder

  • Depression

  • Generalised anxiety disorder

  • Low self-esteem

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)

  • Anger management

  • Bereavement

  • Bullying

  • Family issues

  • Health anxiety

  • Loneliness

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Postnatal depression

  • Separation and divorce

  • Trauma

  • Anxiety

  • Bipolar disorder

  • Cancer

  • Feeling sad

  • Hoarding

  • Low self-confidence

  • Panic disorder

  • Phobias

  • Relationship problems

  • Stress

  • Work-related stress

I also have great experience counselling elderly people. Additionally,  I have been counselling cancer patients and their relatives within a charity, gaining great experience on how to deal with emotional stress that physical health issues can bring.
