About me

Are you wanting to change aspects of your life, become happier, more fulfilled, empowered and/or develop emotional resilience? I offer a respectful, confidential and meaningful therapeutic space in which you can explore ways to improve the quality of your life.

I work with many types of client concerns, including bereavement and loss, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, lack of confidence, work related stress, addictions and disordered eating.

I would be happy to talk through my approach prior to any appointment being made to allow you to gain an understanding of how it might feel to work with me. I also offer a 30 minute meeting free of charge without obligation.

Psychotherapy and Counselling:

My approach is integrative, collaborative and ultimately optimistic. Having worked as a therapist since 2003 I have a deep understanding of how to work sensitively as a counsellor. My broad experience allows me to support clients in achieving beneficial outcomes.

Personal Development Groups:

If you would like to join a small personal development group please contact me.

Courses will be held over three sessions each lasting three hours, for three participants. The over-arching theme is Empowerment - we will explore identity, leadership, identifying needs and self compassion and more.

Courses run Monday mornings 10.00 -13.00 and also on Saturday afternoons 13.30-16.30. Please call me to find out more information.

Coaching and Creating Positive Change:


I also offer solution focused therapy and coaching.

I can help you identify goals which can be formed in subtle and creative ways. I can also coach you if you have formulated definite plans but would like another person who can be trusted to offer different perspectives and track progression.

Life presents us with limitless possibilities and as humans we have innate abilities to transcend and/or learn from challenges. I have found that success often builds upon itself when backed by optimism and knowledgeable action.


Please Contact Me for More Information:


Please contact me if you would like more information about my approaches. I am always very happy to discuss how I work and what you could achieve with us working together.
