The Hope Street Centre
10 Hope Street
6 Central Street
I have been working in the field of wellbeing and mental health for over 20 years now, and have worked with many hundreds of people. Offering a safe and confidential space, I have supported people to find a way through anxiety and worry, problematic moods and depression, anger and aggression, pain and illness, relationship difficulties, and more. Drawing on mindfulness and a range of therapeutic approaches, I work together with each person to find an approach that really suits their way of life.
I wholeheartedly believe in the human capacities for resilience, self-healing and creativity. Life inevitably has its challenges, and sooner or later we all get stuck. At times like these it can be very helpful to have an ally that we can turn to. If you feel that I could be helpful to you, I would be very happy for you to get in touch.
