Integrative Counsellor, Holistic Practitioner, Adults, Couples & teens


I'm a warm and experienced integrative therapist, having practiced for nearly ten years. I'm passionate about working with adults, couples, and young individuals aged 11 and up. My integrative approach stems from being trained in various modalities. This means I tailor my approach to each client, utilising the tools from my toolkit that best suit their needs, rather than trying to fit them into a predefined model. Among the techniques I employ are psychoanalysis, CBT, and EFT, commonly known as tapping. I am a qualified Reiki therapist and can provide massage including Indian Head / Nurturance Massage. Registered with the NCPS,  offering face to face, telephone and online sessions."

Why are counselling sessions crucial for teenagers struggling with their parent's cancer diagnosis?

  • Managing Emotional Strain: Adolescents often confront a whirlwind of emotions—fear, sadness, and uncertainty—when confronted with a parent's cancer diagnosis. Our counselling sessions offer a secure environment for them to articulate and comprehend these emotions, guiding them through the emotional turbulence with support from experienced professionals.

  • Developing Coping Strategies: The teenage years are pivotal for emotional development, and the strain of a parent's illness can significantly impact a teen's mental wellbeing. Our counsellors collaborate with teens to devise effective coping mechanisms, providing them with tools to handle stress and fortify their resilience amid challenging circumstances.

  • Facilitating Communication: Effective communication is paramount in families dealing with a cancer diagnosis. Our counselling sessions encourage open dialogue between teens and their families, fostering understanding and support. Improved communication can strengthen familial bonds and instill a sense of security during times of crisis.

  • Promoting Long-term Wellbeing: The emotional repercussions of a parent's cancer diagnosis may extend beyond the immediate crisis. By addressing mental health concerns early on, our sessions strive to nurture the long-term well-being of teens, empowering them to cultivate resilience for facing life's challenges with strength and optimism.
