Biography


Seven years ago I trained and qualified in Hypnotherapy and begun my journey as a therapist. I felt that this training alone was not sufficient for some of the complex emotional challenges and mental health issues I found some individuals experiencing so I went on to complete an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.

I have trained in a number of therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Person Centred Counselling, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and Hypnotherapy. I also hold Diplomas in PTSD Awareness, Depression Counselling, Child Psychology, and Online Counselling.

I regularly work with adolescents, adults, couples, families, the elderly and disabled via the mediums of telephone, video call, webchat and email. I am a member of professional bodies including ACTO, the NCS and the ACC, and abide by their codes of ethics.

I specialise in working with stress, anxiety, depression, self-harm, PTSD, addictions, OCD, eating disorders, relationship problems, and grief. When working with clients I take a holistic perspective exploring how each aspect of ones life, and areas of health, impact on the others and may be contributing to the problem.

My original motivation to become a therapist was because I have encountered a number of challenging situations in my life and I firmly believe that this lived experience enables me to try to understand and empathise with my clients.

If you decide to work with me I will provide a safe space for you to explore difficult thoughts, emotions, behaviours and beliefs, and support you in making any changes that you may wish to make.
