About Me

I believe that by understanding why we think, feel and behave as we do we can then start to make positive changes leading to an increase in peace, contentment and happiness. I have over 10 years experience of working collaboratively with teenagers and adults to bring about positive changes in mood and behaviour.

I work in an integrative way so that I can incorporate different therapeutic models into my work. This means that I can be flexible in the way that I work with you depending on your preferences and personal goals.

I qualified as an Integrative Counsellor (DipHE University of Birmingham) in 2007 and began my counselling career working with adults 1:1. As part of my training I became interested in Mindfulness and have completed training in the Therapeutic Application of Mindfulness with the British Mindfulness Institute in 2015.  I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have delivered assemblies to students and training in schools to staff about developing and maintaining positive mental health and emotional wellbeing, both for themselves and for the students they work with.

I am particularly interested in working with adults and young people that struggle with anxiety, panic, low mood, depression and stress.

I am based at the Meridian Centre:
