Dip. Couns HPD Cert. Gestalt

Counselling, or Talking Therapy, has helped me with my own life experiences and I am passionate about helping you. I can help you make sense of the way you are feeling and empower you to find ways to move forward. From my personal experience and from my 6 years experience of working with clients, I know that talking with a therapist really helps, especially if you feel you haven’t been truly listened to before.

My sessions are face to face in my therapy room, or online via Zoom, a secure way of having individual therapy. Whichever you choose, I offer you a safe, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings with compassion and integrity.

I believe that we all should have the chance to be the best we can be and to make good choices for ourselves along life’s journey. Sometimes things happen to us which can hold us back, such as traumatic events, workplace stress, difficult or abusive relationships. When this happens, we can feel lost, have low self-esteem or lack confidence in ourselves. I can help you reconnect with your inner self and build confidence, manage anxiety or stress and feel good about yourself.

My areas of expertise include:

Emotional abuse

Anxiety and stress


Imposter Syndrome

Needle phobia

We will meet face to face or online via Zoom in my private counselling room. I will listen to what is troubling you and help you to understand your thoughts and feelings.

Together we can explore the difficulties you have, be it stress, anxiety, depression, feeling like an imposter or anything else, and find ways to move you forward.

Hypnotherapy can help you take positive steps to change unwanted habits, sleep better, feel more confident, lose weight while eating more healthily, manage your anxiety or shake off that phobia.


 I will guide you into a state of deep relaxation, and then give you positive suggestions and ideas specifically tailored to the positive changes you wish to make.



Imposter Syndrome - what is it?

It's the feeling or thought that you are not as good, talented, or skilled as everyone else and soon you will be found out. This

feeling of not being good enough can affect your confidence, your work and your relationships... 


If this sounds like you, remember - you are not alone! And help is here! Take my course - How to Combat Imposter Syndrome - and feel good about yourself again.

Needle Phobia

Do you feel faint at the sight of needles or the thought of an injection? Around 10% of people have a needle phobia. You are NOT just 'being silly'

Needle phobia is unlike any other fear or phobia. It is often associated with fainting and can be inherited. 

I can help you overcome your fear of needles or injections with techniques to calm your mind and prepare your body for any needle treatment
