I help people find solutions to problems in their life. You may be experiencing changes such as children leaving home, redundancy, or the break up of a relationship. These significant events can cause anxiety and leave you feeling stressed.Talking to a trained professional, outside of the situation, can help you find a way to mange these difficulties more effectively and help you feel more resourced.
I work with adults, children & teenagers. I enjoy supporting parents to improve relationships with their children or teenager. I share my understanding of the changes in the brain, during adolescence, to support their vital job as parents, helping them to understand behaviour as a symptom rather than the problem.
It is important to choose someone that you feel comfortable with and that has the expertise to help you. I am an experienced Child & Adult Psychotherapist, registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have been working in this field since 1995.
I also offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy which uses horses for personal development. This unique approach can benefit a range of children, young people & adults as an alternative to talking therapies. It can work alongside other therapies where someone feels 'stuck' in their lives.

Training, qualifications & experience
My background is in youth work. I went on to train as a drug and alcohol counsellor for a local charity. This work introduced me to Transactional Analysis which is a theory of personality and communication. I was intrigued and wanted to learn more. I started my training as a psychotherapist, gaining my qualification in 2008 as a Certified Transactional Analyst and registration with the UKCP as a psychotherapist.
I am also a UKCP registered Child & Adult Psychotherapist.
I am Advance Certicated with EAGALA, Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Association and work as a mentor for them.
