About Me

I've been a therapist for over ten years and have worked in four schools with children aged 7-18, an NHS clinic taking GP referrals, and a low-cost therapy centre in a local community. I have experience with young children and teenagers up to older adults, from various backgrounds and lifestyles, and with many different types of issues such as grief, trauma, relationship issues, depression, and anxiety.

How and why people change has always fascinated me. After studying Philosophy at university I got into personal development, I then studied Clinical Hypnotherapy and used specialist language to help clients resolve trauma. My work then evolved to something less technique based and more about being present, empathising, and accepting the client. I believe that this genuine human connection is what helps the most and it's what I offer now.
