Individually Tailored

Integrative therapy draws on various approaches to tailor therapy to the individual. My approach is informed by humanistic, creativedevelopmental and neuroscience research. 


Developmentally Appropriate

My background and training are specifically in working therapeutically with children and young people.


Experienced and passionate about working with neurodivergent individuals (incl. autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia). I strive to understand and accommodate diverse ways of being, communicating and engaging with therapy.

LGBTQ+ Friendly

Positively welcoming all sexualities and gender identities. I affirm how you self-identity, and I stand against any form of conversion practice.

Creative Arts

Encouraging creativity to support expression: drawing and painting welcome,

but even if you are not 'arty,' we may play with

metaphors, images, songs, memes or anything creative.



Influenced by a personal background of mindfulness,

I bring curiosity and compassion to therapy.

Benefits of Counselling

Counselling offers the consistency of a regular time to feel, express and reflect on emotions within the context of a trusting relationship with a calm adult. I believe that all children and young people deserve to feel heard. My work involves a balance of supporting your strengths as well as facing the difficult things together. 

Counselling is bespoke and unique to each individual. Some of the benefits may include:


  • Feeling heard and less alone

  • Creating coherent narratives about difficult experiences

  • Helping feelings become more manageable

  • Building self-esteem and a positive sense of self

  • Promoting regulation of the nervous system

  • Improving emotional awareness and communication

  • Developing emotional resilience

  • Worrying and anxiety

  • Low mood and depression

  • Low self-esteem

  • Bereavement

  • Loss

  • School transitions

  • Isolation

  • Self-harm

  • Stress

  • Challenges at school

  • Significant life events
