About me

I am both a professional counsellor accredited by the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) and a massage and complementary therapist based in Cambridge. I can provide both counselling (talking therapy) online or complementary and manual therapy (including several massage techniques) in person, or manual therapy in combination with counselling. I have worked therapeutically with adults for a number of years now, and have also been working with children and young people for a couple of years. I mainly deal with bereavement and loss, trauma, sexual abuse, and cultural adaptation issues (read more about my journey into counselling).

In my counselling practice, I uphold the NCPS professional standards of conduct and, in addition to attending ongoing supervision of my counselling practice, I am fully committed to continuous professional development. I attend regular training sessions and workshops to keep my skills up-to-date and be able to give my clients the very best service and support.

I also have over 10 years’ experience as a massage and complementary therapist in Cambridge, having mainly trained with the London School of Massage, ITEC, and Cambridge Regional College. A member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and the Cambridge Massage Society I am also a Reiki Master and a spiritual healer accredited by the Spiritualist National Union and a member of the Cambridge spiritualist community. In my practice I sometimes use elements of energy healing and/or integrate bodywork and breathwork to help clients ground and safely process difficult feelings and emotions or past traumatic experiences. These somatic techniques can help release stored trauma (difficult feelings often get trapped somewhere in the body), calm the nervous system, and promote healing. See all the massage and complementary therapies I offer along with their individual benefits.

My services: counselling

Counselling as a talking therapy helps clients reflect on their issues and encourages them to make positive changes. It also helps them understand the different layers and complexity of trauma. I also provide practical guidance to help my clients on their journey towards healing and recovery.

I offer online or telephone counselling sessions in Cambridge and beyond for both adults and children and young people from the age of 11 to 18.

Book you free initial 20-minute consultation to see if I am a good match to work therapetically with you or your child.

Children and young people counselling can help them:

  • Identify, understand, process, and accept difficult feeling and emotions.
  • Learn healthy coping skills and techniques to help them manage these better. Relaxation, mindfulness, and breathing exercises can help them ground during a stressful time, or an anxiety or panic attack.

In this way you can stop your past fromcontrolling your life and lead a more meaningful existence in the present. #counsellingservices #counsellorsincambridge #counsellingincambridge #childrencounselling See MoreSee Less

Making a memory box is a nice way of remembering a loved one who has died, you can place your fave photos of them in it, cards and/or letters to them or from them, or special items or comfort objects that help you remember then fondly with a smile. It is a nice way of honouring their memory…#bereavementcounselling #childrencounselling #griefandlosssupport #griefandhealing #memorybox See MoreSee Less

One needs to become more aware of the ways we slip into the past to be able to identify our own emotional baggage and proceed to unpack it putting it where it belongs: “We do not eliminate transference; we decant it. We do not kill it as David killed Goliath. We wrestle with it respectfully as did Jacob with the angel, until it yields its blessing. The blessing is the revelation of what we missed or lost and the grace to grieve it rather than transfer it. We feel a momentum to mourn all those who did not make time for us, to let go of their importance to us, to go on with life no longer determined or unduly influenced by what others choose to do. We then find satisfying sources of need-fulfillment in ourselves and in other humans who can be there for us most of the time and not there sometimes. And in a yes to that, we have all we need.”, by David Richo, ‘When the past is present, healing the emotional wounds that sabotage our relationships’ #selfcare #selflove #selfloveisthebestlove #toxicrelationships #empowerment See MoreSee Less
