I'm a mum to two young children. Before training as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked within the NHS as a doctor. After leaving the NHS, I chose to retrain after experiencing for myself how incredibly powerful and beneficial counselling can be.

I love what I do. I believe in working with the person, not the label. I want to get to know you and what your life and your world is like for you. Each day, I feel extremely privileged that my clients let me into their worlds in the therapy room. 

I'm fairly gentle as a person, but I'm always honest. I'm not afraid to ask the difficult questions, and to challenge you at times.

When I'm not counselling, I'm usually running around after my children. Whenever possible I can be found in a forest, on a beach, or up a hill. I'm a big believer in the healing power of being out in nature. 

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and work in accordance with their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. My practice is monitored by a fully-qualified clinical supervisor. I am registered with the ICO (data protection and control), and I hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
