About me

Therapy is for you if you need someone to walk beside you, to understand your experiences and what they mean to you, or if you are feeling stuck or confused. I am here to listen and to honour the journey of your experiences. I help you to explore your deepest fears, and support you towards acceptance of all that you have been through.

Our life experiences and relationships with others can, at times, feel confusing, complex and painful. This can impact on our well-being and perhaps even the relationship we have with ourselves. I am passionate about helping, whether you are struggling, or have a need to feel connected with another. I offer a unique therapeutic relationship that I feel is a powerful experience, and an important part of the healing process. Whether you are experiencing difficulties with your mental health, struggling with a current situation or past experiences, or if you are wanting to grow and reach your full potential, I am here to support you.

I offer a safe, confidential and accepting space where you can bring what you need and we explore these together. You have the freedom to be yourself without judgement. I believe a trusting and honest relationship is of great importance and one that is built together. I am here to support you through a process of being more of who you really are.
