About me

I'm a qualified counsellor with additional post degree training in Positive Psychology at Masters Level. I aim to offer a warm, professional and individual service alongside you and according to your needs. My therapy is suited to people from all walks of life and I work in a collaborative way ie: with you. I offer short and longer term work. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions you would like me to answer for you.

I work in an integrative way ie: different psychological models including person centred, CBT, REBT, Transactional Analysis and psychodynamic approaches.I integrate Positive Psychology with my work, where appropriate, as as this supports movement beyond problems and surviving to a place of flourishing and happiness.

I offer a free telephone session to talk through what you're looking for. It's a chance for you to get to know me a little and explore what you need. Call or text to arrange a convenient time ( 07866 077217) .
