About me

About me

I have worked as a Dramatherapist since 1993, as a Supervisor since 2003 and as a Counsellor since 2008.

My approach is to be clear from the outset about what I can offer and to work together to discover just what sort of help is needed.  Your therapy can be solely through talking although using art materials, objects, movement, play, story and voice work are all powerful ways of finding a way through difficult feelings and emotions when words are not enough.

I think that the first few meetings are vital in finding out if we can usefully work together.   I pay particular attention to setting up a clear contract and working alliance between us to ensure that your therapy is safe and addresses your concerns and difficulties. My aim is to help people find out what they need to express and explore as part of their healing.  I have a dedicated space at home where I see people.
