About Me

 

Late fragment

 

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.

Raymond Carver

My passion is to empower others to feel more authentic: to brave to be more honest and true to themselves on their journeys through life. I aim to offer warmth, compassion, and a safe space to those who have felt the absence of it, so they too can feel 'beloved'.

Aside from having worked for a charity for mothers with post-natal depression, in an NHS GP surgery, and in my private practice, I have also worked in the public and private sector, predominantly in education with children and  families facing difficulties educationally and emotionally.

I am interested in the use of creative approaches such as art and outdoor therapy, as well as working online to increase the accessibility of counselling to anyone who would like to explore themselves further.
