About me

Life begins on the other side of despair” Jean-Paul Sartre. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings gaining personal awareness, enjoy a better quality of life, robust mental health, improved well-being and positive relationships.

My experience and interests include anxiety, paranoid anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, trauma, PTSD, OCD, phobias, anger management, personality disorders, eating disorders including obesity, physical and sexual abuse, gender and sexuality, addiction(s) including substance misuse, alcohol, food, compulsive lying, affairs and betrayals, sex and porn, internet, gambling and gaming in addition to relationship issues specialising in men and women positioned as "abuser" or "abused" aka "perpetrator" or "survivor (victim)", caught up in a cycle of emotional abuse. Additionally, work-related stress, redundancy, bullying, prejudice.
