About Me

I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor, and I run my private practice from a comfortable and safe room in my home in Crowthorne, Berkshire.  

I offer a calm, safe and trusting environment where we can explore together what might going on for you in and out of your awareness. I am warm and compassionate but I can also be appropriately challenging when needed.

I believe that counselling with me can give you the space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, which will help you understand yourself better.

Counselling can help you to recover emotionally and psychologically from any past issues or traumas and can give you the clarity to make positive changes in your life.   Together we will work to help you find the way to a happier, peaceful, and more fulfilling present, and future.

​As a humanistic integrative therapist, I use different ways of working with you depending on your needs.  My focus however is always on our therapeutic relationship, as I believe this is most important in order to achieve growth and change without embarrassment or shame.

​From my previous role as a rape and sexual abuse counsellor, I have considerable experience in working with clients who may have experienced trauma either in childhood or as an adult.

I understand the coping mechanisms that many people adopt after traumatic events, that may have helped protect them at the time.  These can include alcohol abuse, eating disorders, self-harm, poor sleeping patterns, intimacy issues, feelings of shame, flashbacks and dissociation.  

​Together we will work to explore how and why these coping mechanisms supported you at one time, and how you can now learn to replace them with healthier coping strategies.

​I am passionate about my work, and as a registered member of the BACP and UKCP, you can feel safe in knowing that I offer a confidential and professional service.  

​I am fully qualified and insured, and have an MSc in Humanistic Psychotherapy as well as a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from The Metanoia Institute in Ealing.
