About Me

I am a qualified, BACP registered counsellor, offering CBT counselling and psychotherapy in Leamington Spa, for clients of all ages.

Since beginning my counselling training in 2011, I have completed many hours of clinical work within organisational settings, and in my own private practice. I have worked with clients of all ages experiencing difficulties with relationships, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, self-harm, low self esteem, and loss, as well as many other issues. I also have extensive experience of working with adults and adolescents affected by sexual violence or abuse.

I believe that any talking therapy is most effective when you can trust and feel comfortable with your counsellor, and so I offer an initial telephone consultation free of charge, to discuss what you hope to gain from counselling and how we may work together to achieve that.

My practice is based in Leamington Spa, which is within easy reach of Warwick, Stratford, Kenilworth, and surrounding areas.

Counselling for Children and Young People

I have been working extensively with children and young people for a number of years and I currently practice within some local schools, in addition to my private practice.

Children and young people face many challenges, such as the pressures of school, difficult life experiences, issues with friendships and social media, to name but a few. As a result they can often be struggling with understanding how they feel and can find it very difficult to talk openly with people that they know. In my experience, children and young people find having a therapeutic space separate from family and teachers incredibly helpful. With a counsellor they are able to start to identify and better understand, their own thoughts and feelings.

My Approach

My approach is collaborative and I aim to work with you in an empathic, and non-judgemental way, in order to support you in recovering from, and learning from, your experiences, as well as focussing on new strategies to make positive changes within your life.

I work in a flexible way to best suit each client's needs and personality. Whilst weekly sessions are often recommended, particularly to begin with, this is not always essential to ensure that therapy is effective.
Together we can plan your sessions at intervals that suit you and your individual needs.
