About me

I have been working within the field of mental health for almost 25 years, and have accumulated a wealth of training and experience.

I provide both long and short term Integrative therapy to suit your needs, and work to a high standard of confidentiality.

I am a very non-judgemental and open minded therapist, and offer a very safe place for you to work through issues that are troubling you.These can be to do with relationship difficulties, anxiety, or depression.

I can offer Animal Assisted Therapy if you would like to explore this way of working, but this is only provided following a discussion around how this may help you.

Please feel free to call me in order to discuss any questions you may have, I am very timely in responding to e-mail enquiries.

I currently have availability in Podington.
