About counselling and psychotherapy

Psychotherapy and counselling can help you better understand your thoughts and feelings and, with that new understanding, support you in making the decisions about your life you want to make. 


Counselling generally refers to shorter-term work on one particular issue, such as a bereavement or a career change, while psychotherapy refers to longer-term work. Psychotherapy may involve looking at longer-term issues, patterns which repeat in your life, your ways of coping, or how you see yourself and the world around you. 


I’m an integrative psychotherapist. This means that I’m able to draw upon principles from a range of approaches to psychotherapy, tailoring my approach to you and your needs. No one person is the same as the next; the therapy they receive shouldn’t be either. In our initial session, and at review points during our work, I will ask you about your expectations of therapy and will discuss with you the ways in which we could work together to try to meet them. 


Whatever the approach to psychotherapy or counselling, it is widely acknowledged that the most important factor in helping people is the relationship between the therapist and the client. With this in mind, I provide a confidential, consistent, empathetic and non-judgmental space for you.


I’m able to work on a long-term, open-ended basis, or over a shorter-term. Whatever the duration of our work, we will meet once a week for a 50 minute session.

Who I work with

I work one-on-one with adults over the age of 18 who are resident in the UK.

I’ve worked with people who have sought counselling or psychotherapy for the following reasons:


  • Anxiety and stress

  • Depression

  • Work-life balance and burnout

  • Impostor syndrome

  • Career change 

  • Life crises

  • Feeling lost or stuck, or an absence of purpose and meaning 

  • Sense of being empty, or not knowing who one truly is

  • Low self-worth and confidence

  • Creative blocks or feeling that one does not have permission to be creative

  • Relationship and family challenges


Our first session is an opportunity for me to learn about you and your reasons for seeking therapy, and for us both to see if we’re a good fit. I’ll explain more about how psychotherapy and counselling works too. If I’m not the right therapist for you, I’ll do my best to refer you to another psychotherapist or counsellor.
