Therapeutic Support In A Safe Space Without Judgement.
Young People (18 plus) & Adults - Anxiety, Depression, Loss and Change
Anxious, sad, maybe feeling isolated in your thoughts and feelings. Scared of rejection and then feeling shame, guilt and judgement is a hard place to be. Through a kind, thoughtful therapeutic approach that puts you at the centre of my work I can offer you a safe haven. A chance to unload what may have been stopping you from living the life you know or maybe don’t know is out there. Time to reach out and be heard.

A Guide to Your Goals
I specialise in supporting young people (18 plus) and adults with neuro diversity (dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD & autism) especially with how society impacts their lives. I also have experience of young people and adults struggling with changes, whether sudden or expected, in their lives. I have empathy and understanding through my own personal life experiences of sudden change.
Previously I have worked as a counsellor with a charity supporting young people over 18 years of age.
I have training and experience of being present for my clients who are struggling with grief due to bereavement and loss.
Every client is unique and should be given the opportunity to be actively listened to. My approach is always non- judgemental with an unconditional positive regard for all my clients.
Confidentiality and trust are key to helping my clients feel safe and assured that they will be respected.
By using a range of therapies such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), Gestalt and Person-Centred Therapies, I offer my clients a diverse, bespoke structure to manage their worries.
Through talking and sharing their thoughts and feelings with me, I can show my clients different skills and tools to use whenever they feel anxious. I enjoy sharing this learning experience with my clients as it helps them to move forward in reaching their own aspirations and no longer feeling stuck within their own thought process.

Working with neuro diversity
Guidance & Inspiration
This is a passion of mine as I love to work with young and adult clients to help them unlock their potential in life. Through judgment and lack of knowledge, people with dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, ADHD and other diverse conditions have experienced judgement that has left them feeling isolated and not good enough. I like to shake up that ideology and allow my clients to come to appreciate and like how they think and act. Through gentle talking therapy, CBT and Gestalt therapy I help my clients learn more about themselves and how important they are in society with their skills and thought processes. I fully adhere to full inclusion for everyone in society.
Low Self Esteem
Confidence and self- esteem can really be improved through a gentle therapeutic process.
I have listened to my clients and how they feel unworthy of the good things in life. They apologise for wanting to be or say how they feel. I believe everyone has a voice that should be heard. Through a person- centred approach, I actively listen and work through automatic negative thoughts that my clients have taken on without realising. Overtime we can all listen to judgment and persistent negative talk that may be projected towards us, through CBT and Gestalt Therapy, I help my clients to recognise and overturn the negatives into positives.
Trauma and Loss Support
Through a gentle and listening approach, my clients feel safe in our counselling sessions. There is no expectation or leading into previous trauma and loss but rather time and gentleness for what can be very difficult memories. Through my experience and training with Age UK and Cruse Bereavement, I know how past traumas and loss can impact a client at any time in their life.
By having the space to bring whatever you want to our sessions, you can slowly work through how you want to process your bereavement, loss or trauma. You will not be on your own with this healing process but rather gently supported with empathy and understanding.
