It is really important to look for a counsellor who not only holds the right qualifications, but who you feel comfortable with. I understand that opening up to someone you don't know can feel very daunting but with the right therapist, you will feel a sense of safety and trust and most importantly feel heard and understood. Together we can work through issues, uncover insights, reach goals and find solutions. Having time and space dedicated just to you with a trained therapist can truly be life changing. As for qualifications, I achieved a Masters Degree in Counselling after previously working in education and law, careers which have added an invaluable proficiency to my practice. I am qualified to provide counselling to all age groups and have acquired skills and expertise in several contemporary evidence-based counselling approaches. My practice is integrative which means that I draw upon many counselling theories as each client is unique and not one approach meets all client needs.  I use a holistic approach to different therapeutic models but mostly use:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) 

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) 

  • Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)

  • and Mindfulness Techniques. ​

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) and adhere to both the BACP Ethical Framework and the ACA Code of Ethics and Practice, including undertaking regular supervision and ongoing professional development, ensuring the highest professional standards. I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, have an enhanced DBS certificate and I am fully insured.


I offer counselling for adults in many areas, several of which are listed below. However, most of my work focuses on anxiety which includes generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, phobias and social anxiety. Anxiety can also co-occur with other issues such as eating disorders and grief, making anxiety far more common than many people realise. However, the good news is that therapy can help significantly reduce and manage anxiety symptoms. 


I also have a special interest in counselling children, adolescents and young adults after working for over 20 years as a teacher and lecturer in schools and universities in Australia and the Middle East. I later gained specialised training and extensive experience working with children and adolescents with learning difficulties including dyslexia, ADHD as well as students with autism spectrum disorders. Working in both private practice and school settings has provided a thorough understanding of the developmental, emotional, social and educational issues experienced by children and young people, many of which are included in the list below.

  • eating disorders 

  • grief

  • gender dysphoria
