I am a qualified psychotherapist with over 10 years post qualification experience. I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I have an immense amount of experience working with all different kinds of people with many different problems including anxiety, stress, relationship problems, low mood, abuse, trauma, depression, stress, conflict, relationship problems, bereavement, chronic health conditions and death anxiety.
I work confidentially with you to understand your difficulties and find solutions, helping you live a happier life.
Counselling gives you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. I am resilient and can listen to your problems and emotional distress. This validates your experiences and gives you strength in yourself and confidence to change, carry on and re-connect to your values and what you find important in your life.
I work in Leighton Buzzard and Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire.

Previously worked for Lea Vale Health as a counsellor for Talking Therapies in Liverpool Road Health Centre, Luton, Bedfordshire from October 2012 until March 2016.
Psychodynamic therapy interests me as relationships and attachments from childhood can affect our present day relationships. I'm also interested in key life events and how we build up resources and resilience to help us when we experience difficulties such as a bereavement, abuse or stress.
Through therapy, you can draw on your past to help you move on in the present. Noticing what has happened in your past gives you more chance of making changes to how you want to live now!
