As the client counselor relationship is at the very core of my work it is important that we can work effectively together to achieve the best outcome for you. I very much value diversity and respect the individual. People differ we may face similar life problems and stresses that can impact on our health, relationships and work. Yet our experience of these problems are unique and personal to each of us.
I work in an integrative way to suit your specific counseling needs. I can offer you a safe non judgemental counseling space where I will welcome you with an open mind and heart and work with you at your pace to help you explore the issues that are troubling you. Working together we can find the solution that is best suited to you so you can begin to move forward with your life in a more meaningful way that is right for you.
I work with a wide range of issues including depression, bereavement, relationships, loss and change, gender, identity issues, self acceptance/personal growth.
My special area of interest is in Womens Health and Well Being. I have a work background and wide experience in working with issues of domestic abuse, sexual abuse and trauma.
