Are you looking for a supportive therapeutic environment in which to relax, connect with yourself, process, heal and grow?

I provide holistic therapy, in-person counselling, mindfulness, and crisis sessions for women (LGTBQ inclusive) and online  counselling and mindfulness for all genders.

You may simply be seeking a relaxing treatment to ease everyday stresses and strains, or perhaps you are looking for support through a time of stress, upheaval or change.  However you feel at the time, your treatment, or series of treatments will be tailored to support you in your personal journey.

I work with a variety of clients - from those seeking some relaxation, pampering and me-time, to those experiencing a range of issues - from everyday stresses and strains - to sudden life-changing circumstances, trauma, shock, overwhelm, sudden or long-term stress, anxiety, panic, agoraphobia, low self-esteem, insomnia, bullying, depression, sudden and long-term physical and emotional health issues.  hidden disabilities such as migraine, chronic pain, IBS,  ME, MS,  Ankylosing Spondilitis, cancer. menstrual issues, conception, pre-and-post-natal care, menopause and other hormone related experiences. Personal discovery, recovery, healing and growth.

I have an holistic, integrative and flexible, approach meaning that we will work together to decide on a therapeutic way forward, considering the whole of you - mind, body and spirit.

Reflexology, Massage and Aromatherapy are nurturing, rebalancing treatments that may aid the mind & body's own natural healing processes and may help support you through many of life's challenges. These are flexible therapies that are responsive to the individual, working on physical, psychological and spiritual levels as appropriate. They may be given in combination - therefore your treatment might include a single therapy, or a mix of all three. It’s up to you. As well as being perfect for every day relaxation and me-time, some people find this kind of treatment useful as a way to process and work through things.

Counseling, Mindfulness and CBT are all empowering approaches which aim to help you develop self-awareness, self-esteem, self-acceptance and self-determination. They can also be powerful tools for noticing, exploring, and managing difficult feelings, sensations, thoughts and behaviours. Anxiety, panic,  depression, can seem to appear from nowhere but this is rarely the case. Together we can explore the root causes and triggers- and decide on a way forward together.

My therapeutic approach is Integrative – meaning I am flexible - using either a single therapeutic method or a blend - according to your needs.

Crisis Sessions

I offer 1.5/2 hr ‘crisis’ sessions for women- LGTBQ inclusive - These begin with a longer consultation in which you can express your current experiences and in which together we can decide on the best approach for your session- which may include some guided mindfulness together with aromatherapy, reflexology, massage - according to your needs and preferences on the day. These sessions aim to understand and dull the fight or flight response, reactivate the parasympathetic nervous system, helping to soothe, calm and ground.

Having spent most of my life in the creative arts, I decided in 2009 to pursue my interest in people and healing.  I trained in Holistic Massage, Clinical Aromatherapy and Reflexology, and subsequently graduated with First Class honours (2013) from the BSc Complementary Therapies programme at Cardiff Metropolitan University.  I was also awarded a prize for my research into the use of Aromatherapy Massage in the management of Chronic (long term) Insomnia.

I undertook my graduate Complementary Therapy placement in a residential short- stay mental health crisis centre, where I ran a weekly clinic working with people suffering acute mental health crises - using Massage, Reflexology and Aromatherapy to support clients, aid their relaxation, and ease their stress.  This experience left me convinced of the valuable role that Complementary Therapies can play, alongside conventional medicine, in aiding healing through creating a calm, supportive space for deep relaxation.  It also led to my decision to train to be a counsellor.

I initially started my counselling training by focussing on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)  - obtaining a level 7 PGC in CBT counseling skills, and began further CBT training on a Masters course. However, after two terms and quite a few client hours, I came to the realisation that whilst CBT can be a great tool, I had become disillusioned with how CBT is often delivered within the UK - and therefore how clients often sometimes experience it. I wanted to get back to the underpinnings of CBT - which are person - centred. This, coupled with the knowledge that one single therapeutic approach cannot suit every person in every circumstance, convinced me to train as a person-centred counsellor, qualifying to practice in 2022 and gaining my certificate of profiency from the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). My personal counselling training means I can now offer either Humanistic, Person-Centred approaches, or CBT, or Mindfulness  - or a blend of all three according to what best suits you - the uniquely complex, individual, human client. 

I have my own personal daily mindfulness practice, and since qualifying as a counselor I have trained as a Mindfulness Teacher and am qualified to teach mindfulness to groups and also one-to-one. This includes teaching the 8 week Mindfulness Now program- which is approved by the British Psychological Society. I have also undertaken further CPD (Continuing Professional Development) - with Dr Gabor Mate in his Compassionate Enquiry approach, also Emotion Focussing, OCD, Grief and working with People with Alzheimer's/Dementia.

I'm a registered member of the BACP (British Association for counseling and Psychotherapy) (MBACP: Reg. number 398007) and follow their code of ethics. You can view my profile on the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists Directory, and the Psychology Today directory, by following the links on the counselling and mindfulness page.

I regularly work with people living with Alzheimer's / Dementia - both in their own homes and in residential care settings in my work with Effro- part of Platfform Wellbeing.

I am fully insured and have a full DS check as I work regularly with vulnerable people.

About my Background and Training

You are unique - and so your therapy should be unique too. As Abraham Maslow said

“If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”

This is why I have always chosen to train in multiple disciplines and offer a blended, individually tailored approach to therapy.
