About Me

Receiving a medical diagnosis can be life changing. Why me? What will treatment be like? Will I ever be myself again? These are all questions that might be going through your mind. Or maybe you are living with a chronic condition and struggling with the day to day because of fatigue, pain, low mood, or lack of support. Coming to terms with a medical condition can be challenging for both you, your partner and your family. I am able to support you in your journey to addressing the emotional impact of physical illness.

I have a deep understanding of the challenges of receiving a diagnosis, undergoing treatment, and finding a “new normal”. Along with my own experience of illness, I have been counselling people affected by cancer in the NHS for many years and have undertaken research in the lived experience of rare conditions, an area I feel particularly passionate about.

Some of the issues I have worked with include:
- Depression and low mood
- Self harming behaviour
- Carer's guilt
- Issues around sex and sexuality
- Difficulty coping with a diagnosis
- Relationship issues
- Bereavement and loss
- Coping with treatments and side-effects
- Self-esteem and confidence issues
- Anxiety
- Facing difficult prognosis and end of life

I work with

  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

No one ever expects to be told they have the "big C" and it can be a really frightening time full of uncertainty, anger, and sadness. I have been working in the NHS with patients, relatives and carers affected by cancer for over 7 years and have had the privilege of supporting individuals through some of the hardest times of their lives.
