I am a fully qualified Humanistic therapist and I undertook my training at the Metanoia Institute. As a humanistic counsellor, my focus is to support you in re-discovering your innate sense of goodness and wholeness.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and abide by their code of ethics to ensure I am working in the best interest of my clients. My approach integrates the values of Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt philosophy. This blend of modalities allows me to be flexible in my work and meet you where you are in your life.
I am a warm, welcoming and enthusiastic therapist. My aim is to help you feel comfortable and safe during our time together. I believe I achieve this through paying close attention to whatever it is you wish to share, and collaboratively looking at your material through a lens of curiosity, without judgement.

Professional roles and interests
I have worked in a number of roles. My current role is as a bereavement counsellor supporting individuals to make sense of their loss and discovering who they are now in relation to their bereavement. I also gained experience working as a counsellor for a low cost therapy provider open to individuals from diverse backgrounds with varying issues, mostly including profoundly traumatic experiences. In addition to my most recent roles, I spent a significant amount of time working in domiciliary care where I gained a deep understanding of how to work compassionately with older adults in the later stages of their life.
My professional interests include updating and broadening my knowledge on trauma. I regularly attend therapeutic workshops which include working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, biodynamic psychotherapy, trauma and the effects on development, and working with trauma in clinical settings.
