Individual & Couples Therapy

My Practice and Me 

“Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.” - Bessel A. van der Kolk  

First and foremost my priority is creating a safe, warm and accepting environment that enables the vulnerability and authenticity that is necessary for connection, healing and growth. 

I have a genuine interest and care for anyone who wants to share and explore their personal experiences with me. My aim is to help us understand and navigate through difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences, while offering empathy and acceptance in order to recognise unhelpful patterns, so you can make conscious choices that bring you closer to having the relationship with yourself and others that you want, and live your life in a more fulfilling way. 

People come to therapy for many different reasons but often they are dissatisfied, uncomfortable or distressed by aspects of themselves, their relationships or their lives, and are seeking some kind of change. I am a trauma informed therapist and I have a holistic approach. We are affected by many factors including our history, our environment, our belief systems and our neurobiology and so I draw on different theoretical approaches to help us to understand what might be causing the discomfort without judgement or labelling. I originally qualified in Person Centred counselling and this is the foundation from which I work, and I also integrate aspects of Transactional Analysis, Polyvagal theory, Attachment theory, Internal Family Systems, and Systemic theory.

I believe the best therapists have done, and continue to do the inner work themselves. I have an endless enthusiasm for meeting, exploring and nurturing different parts of myself. I remain open to and curious about what unfolds with each client, and I continue to grow alongside my clients with these experiences.

Who I Work With

I work with adults (18+) with a range of presenting issues. These include but are not limited to trauma, depression, anxiety, self harm, bereavement, eating disorders, relationship issues, anger issues, and those recovering from domestic abuse, childhood abuse or sexual violence. 

Where, When and How Much

I am currently working online over Google Meet. I offer individual sessions at a rate of £60 and couples sessions at £80 per hour.  I usually meet with clients on a weekly basis but I am flexible with this and cater to both long term and short term work. 

For me, therapy is collaborative so in order to establish if we could work well together, I offer a free, 30 minute initial meeting.  


I have a BA (Hons) in Person-Centred Counselling from Middlesex University and a post qualification Practitioner's Certificate in Couples Counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work in accordance with their ethical framework
