About me

I have a particular interest in working with people in transition (for example, returning to work, relationship break up, career change, redundancy, retirement) and the impact of these life transitions. I bring to my work compassion, sensitivity and a commitment to facilitating change.

I offer a safe space where clients can talk about present difficulties and explore unresolved past issues and patterns which may be getting in the way of living the life they want. I work one to one with adults with a wide range of issues.

My passion and interest lie in working alongside clients to help them move forward to live the life they desire.
