About me

I work with teenagers and adults for a variety of issues including low self confidence, depression, anxiety, bereavement and relationship difficulties.

I know from personal experience that it takes courage to walk into a therapy room and I will do my best to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. I will work with you at the pace you set and will check regularly with you that you are happy with how counselling is going.

My approach is integrative meaning I draw from different theories to suit each individual client. I believe each person is different and I tailor my approach accordingly.
