I have worked at a holistic drug treatment centre where  clients underwent treatments to overcome their addictive behaviour.The skills I gained here helps me to prevent young people getting into substance misuse.

When I was a school counsellor I interacted with children, adolescents, staff and parents, helping them to meet their emotional, psychological, relational and educational needs.

In my private practice, I see clients with panic disorder, persistent pain, dementia, trauma, bereavement, relationship issues and couple counselling. I also see clients referred by their doctor for anxiety and depression.

Other areas of counselling I deal with


I see adults going through stress at work, redundancy, career change and lack of meaning to life.

I have much experience in working with sixth former students We address issues that are affecting their home and school life in this crucial time of personal development. Some of the problems brought to counselling are lack of motivation, self harm, relationship breakdown and lack of meaning in life. By the use of talking therapy the student learns to manage his or her emotional self so that their mind is clear to focus on studies and future career.

My particular area of expertise with families is working with a parent or both parents to improve the relationship with their teenage children.

I am a Registered Provider with Aviva and Pruhealth insurance.
