About Me

I have been working as a counsellor for over 10 years and my core training is in Gestalt theory. During my training I completed my placement hours working with young people and continued to work in this area for a further 5 years after qualifying. I went into private practice, working from my home office based in Eastleigh, Hampshire in 2017 working with individual adults only.

Since Covid-19 the demand for online counselling has grown and I have now decided to no longer offer face to face therapy preferring to solely offer online counselling and supervision.

My therapeutic style is as diverse as my client’s needs and my approach is direct, genuine and empathetic. I have completed further training in many different areas over this last decade such as mental health related issues, neuroscience and the brain, family and relationships, eating disorders and differences, narcissistic abuse, trauma and processing techniques, neurodivergence ( for which, I have lived experience) and so much more.

As well as my listening ear, I integrate different tools and exercises into my work to aid you through the counselling process such as Inner child work, tapping, guided meditation, breathing exercises and trauma processing techniques.

I am trauma informed, which means I have attended specialist training in this area and have experience working with trauma such as historic abuse, relationship difficulties with family, partners or friends.

Led by my clients and their needs rather than the other way around I create a space of safety and curiosity allowing the opportunity for self awareness and personal growth to develop.
