I am a therapist who helps people reflect on their life as a whole and identify the areas causing them difficulties. My goal is to help you work towards something personally meaningful. I'm trained in different approaches, but I primarily focus on helping you explore your own experiences and avoid making assumptions about what your life 'should' or 'should not' be like.

I believe that every person is unique and needs different things at different times. So, I collaborate with my clients to find the most helpful things to focus on during therapy. I'm flexible in how we work together and will happily co-create a plan to fit your specific needs.

I have a particular interest in eco-therapeutic principles and ways of working, which means that I use the natural world as inspiration for my therapeutic approach. I also believe that we're all doing our best to navigate a complicated existence and that you have the power to make changes in your life.

If you're looking for a therapist who will give you techniques, and exercises, I might not be the best fit for you. Instead, I aim to support you in engaging with your life, accepting the things that are unchangeable, and embracing the opportunities for change.

Because of my reflective and broadly focused style, I usually work with clients over the long-term (20 sessions or more), however, we can decide together what the best way forward is.

I predominantly work with adults, however, I can offer my Counselling service to anyone 16 years or older (under 18yrs requires parental/guardian consent).

I am a neurodiversity-affirming therapist.
