How Edelweiss came to be

When it came to naming my therapy practice, I wanted a name that would be meaningful and evoke a sense of comfort and healing. That's why I called my business Edelweiss Therapy.


The name Edelweiss holds a special place in my heart because of its rich symbolism. The Edelweiss flower is highly valued for its beauty and rarity. It grows in harsh alpine conditions, on rocky terrains where few other plants survive. This resilience and ability to bloom in adversity resonated with me on a personal level. 

Just like the Edelweiss flower, therapy is about resilience and growth. It's about helping individuals navigate through life's challenges and develop the skills they need to thrive. The name Edelweiss Therapy reflects the therapeutic approach that I take with my clients. It's about creating a safe and nurturing environment where they can explore their emotions, gain insight, and find healing. 

At Edelweiss Therapy, the goal is to provide a space where clients feel supported and understood. It's about helping them tap into their inner strength and resilience. Just as the Edelweiss flower adapts and flourishes in difficult conditions, therapy aims to help individuals find their own inner resources and thrive, no matter the circumstances. 

I promise to offer you a safe space to explore your life, including your hopes and dreams for the future, to get greater peace and contentment.  I will walk alongside you, person to person, empathically and without judgment.

As a BACP-qualified, Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, the therapy I provide will mainly be person-centred but will also combine other theories and techniques including neuroscience, Gestalt and creative therapy.    Amongst other areas, I have a particular interest in the effects of Bereavement, Loss, Grief and Trauma.


I work to the BACP's ethical framework which includes having regular supervision to ensure that I am providing you with the most appropriate beneficial counselling.

I decided to operate from my home, and in doing so I can provide a cosy non-clinical environment.
