A lifelong interest, curiosity and enthusiasm in people are my driving forces. It is easy for any one of us to feel stuck, overwhelmed or misunderstood, but I hold a belief that every person has the capacity for positive growth and can increase their self-awareness.
Before establishing my own private practice, I worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist in various clinical settings including the NHS, Women’s Aid and Cruse.
Working extensively in the area of bereavement, I have developed a keen interest in attachment, loss and unresolved grief and how this can affect people emotionally. I also have valuable experience in working with a varied range of issues ranging from the trauma of domestic abuse, relationship problems and depression.
I hold a 1st Class Honours Degree in Humanistic Counselling from the University of Nottingham where I was privileged to study under some of the best academics in current mental health research.
I have written book reviews on academic literature, along with an article on the effects of trauma, both published in the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) professional journal,”Thresholds”.
Currently, I am researching towards my own book on the complexities and trauma of bereavement and loss.
When I’m not working I enjoy experimenting with food recipes, attending music events and visiting places of ancient or historical interest.
