Why me?

I have had therapy...

As a child, I experienced trauma and, as a result, struggled to regulate my emotions; the older I got, I quite quickly developed a panic disorder. I worried about everything; I didn't fit in anywhere and felt like I hated myself; nothing was good enough or achievable.  As I got older, I had little to no self-worth, confidence and self-esteem, which impacted my relationships and attachment to others and caused me to develop social anxiety. I never thought I could ever feel better, that was until I had therapy.   Therapy helped me understand myself in ways I never thought possible; I can now process why I experienced anxiety, and I have developed tools to help me calm down before a panic attack. I have learned that the mind and body are connected; I can identify what causes my physiological symptoms to trigger my stress responses and manage it.    Perhaps you can relate in some way, and maybe you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship or feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. I am here to help you learn to love yourself and give yourself the love and support you need. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. In my sessions, I promote learning about how our thoughts, actions and behaviours impact our bodies and minds and encourage the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and personal and professional experience to help you get back on track.​I have experienced pain and trauma and know how hard life can be; I believe a person's behaviours do not define them as a person. ​

Over my decade-long career, I have developed a versatile set of skills that enable me to connect with individuals from all walks of life effectively. My expertise encompasses various crucial areas, including trauma, substance abuse, untreated mental health concerns, physical and emotional domestic violence, anxiety and depression, stress, self-esteem and confidence struggles, isolation, grief, terminal and chronic illnesses, body dysmorphia, and gender dysmorphia.


As a qualified professional, I hold a Master's degree in Social Work, a Bachelor of Science degree in Counseling and Therapeutic Studies, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. Additionally, I am a trained life coach and play therapist with over 100 hours of experience in play therapy with children in a school setting. With such extensive qualifications, I am equipped to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those I work with.


Moreover, I have completed various training courses, including Safeguarding Children Levels 1-7, Safeguarding Adults Levels 1-4, Mental Health First Aid, LGBTQ+ Awareness, Child Sexual Exploitation, Child Neglect Awareness, Prevent and Radicalisation, Equality and Diversity, ADHD Awareness, Adolescent Mental Health Awareness, Autism Awareness, Child Bereavement, Child Development, Drug and Alcohol Awareness, Domestic Violence Awareness, Mental Capacity Act, Self-harming Awareness, Substance Misuse Awareness, Child Sexual Abuse, Trauma Awareness. My knowledge and skills in these areas allow me to offer assistance and support whenever necessary.
