                                                  ***************************************************


I can imagine that it’s taken a lot of courage for you to get here. Perhaps like myself, you too believe that life doesn’t get better by CHANCE, it gets better by CHANGE...

Whilst we can't always change the world around us, we do have the power to make changes within ourselves. Such changes can affect our circumstances and the way in which we choose to view and interact with others - "We often don't see things as they actually are, we more often than not see them as we are."

                                                  ***************************************************

Therapy can provide a rich environment to express difficulties and to explore creative solutions. I see the therapeutic process as a collaborative one and believe that through a strong, working relationship; positive change is more likely to occur.

Therapy can be daunting for some, therefore my sole intention is to provide you with a safe, warm and respectful space so that you may navigate your way through any challenges that you may be experiencing, or areas that you would like to improve upon.

Therapy is a journey with enormous potential for healing and can help us to move towards living a more fulfilling and whole life.

                                                  **************************************************

I am an experienced and registered counsellor currently working within a primary school setting; as well as practicing privately.

I work with young children, adolescents (I worked for over 4 years in a complex secondary school), adults and couples utilising person-centered and cognitive behavioural therapies/skills. Both of these therapeutic approaches are designed to generate positive change - whether this be socially, emotionally or behaviorally.

As an integrative therapist I will employ whatever tools I feel are appropriate/or necessary in order to assist an individual in overcoming their problems. I believe that every client is unique, having unique thoughts, feelings and difficulties and that to apply a fixed style of counselling could demean this uniqueness.

I have experience in trauma, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, physical abuse, substance misuse, addictions, anger, self-esteem, fears/phobias, bereavement, divorce, behavioural management, addictions, infidelity, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, self-harm, trichotillomania, depression, anxiety, domestic violence, radicalization, bullying, truanting, child-parent conflicts and more....
