I believe that every person deserves to be seen, heard, and known and I am passionate about creating a relaxed and safe space to bring your whole self.

I use a person-centred approach to counselling, meaning that sessions revolve around the individual before me, considering their unique context, needs, and goals. I draw upon an integrated range of theories, applying the appropriate tool for each individual person.

I like to consider each person holistically, taking into account physical, emotional, mental, relational, and spiritual aspects of their situation.

People have always told me that I’m a great listener. From even a young age I have found myself taking up opportunities to support and care for those around me. It’s no surprise then that this thread has also woven itself through my professional career.

I spent 7 years mentoring and coaching university students in matters of life and spirituality, followed by 3 years working in staff wellbeing and development for a not-for-profit organisation. Alongside that I’ve been working as a counsellor for the last 4 years, and more recently as a mental health recovery worker.

I have experience in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness practices, spiritual and religious practices, and trauma-informed techniques.

My areas of interest include:

  1. Burnout
  2. Life transition
  3. Stress
  4. Trauma
  5. Setting boundaries
  6. Identity
  7. Goal setting
  8. Spiritual and religious issues

When I get some spare time, I love cross stitching, reading, enjoying good coffee, cooking, and playing with my son.
