About Me

My Work

Alongside my private counselling practice, I also volunteer as a bereavement counsellor at a local hospice where I help clients work through their grief after experiencing the devastating loss of a loved one. I also work alongside clients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Although this work can be challenging at times it is also incredibly rewarding. I feel both proud and privileged to have the opportunity to support clients as they face their grief and take the difficult steps that allow them to gradually adapt after their personal loss.

I also have specific experience with eating disorders, along with the knowledge and a deep understanding of the psychological issues that drive an individual to hold onto an eating disorder. With compassion, empathy and understanding I can support individuals within this exceedingly complex area.

Standards of Practice
