“Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength”
WHAT TO EXPECT
Always alongside you
Perhaps you're feeling low, overwhelmed by depression or anxiety ... maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, your job isn't going well, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of self-discovery, and in my sessions I work with you to understand the things causing you distress. I have the tools and professional experience to help you make the changes you need .
SERVICES I OFFER
Therapy and counselling for depression, anxiety and more...
A Happier, Healthier You
I work with clients with all kinds of difficulties: Work stress, anxiety and panic disorders, depression, self harm, relationship issues, grief…and many more. Please don’t feel that anything you might want to talk to me about is either too trivial or too difficult. You will always be listened to confidentially and you will not be judged.
The aim is to achieve either fundamental, long-term shifts or to address specific issues that are holding you back, so that you can live a freer life.
If you are interested in us working together, we would meet for an initial session to decide whether we would like to go forward. Thereafter, if we agreed, we would work together in either a fixed term or an open-ended way, so please do contact me.
COUNSELLING FOR TEENAGERS
The future is bright.
Adolescence can be tough; trying to work out who you are and what you want in a noisy, demanding world can get you down. I see people who are often feeling alienated, anxious, angry or lonely - the kinds of things it can be hard to talk to your friends or family about. I work with all kinds of distress, including that which can lead to panic attacks, self-harm and suicidal ideation. My experience spans several years, both as a school counsellor and with private clients, and I help give young people hope back for their future.
Being a therapist is a privilege. I love my work.

HOW LONG IS A THERAPY SESSION?
WHERE WOULD WE MEET?
I have a therapy room in The Cotswolds, near Burford. It is a quiet, confidential space. I also work online with clients and offer walking therapy wherein we take off across the fields together for 50 minutes.
Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long. We would meet at the same time each week.
DO YOU OFFER REDUCED RATES?
HOW OFTEN DO WE MEET?
CAN I STOP AT ANY TIME?
I sometimes offer lower rates for those in financial difficulty. We can always talk about that.
Yes, you can stop therapy whenever you like.
We would meet each week, usually at the same time on the same day. We'd work together until we feel we've achieved what you wanted.
