About me

I am qualified Psychotherapist trained in Transactional Analysis. 
I have over 13 years of practice in working with people experiencing a range of various life difficulties.

As a counsellor, I believe that each of us has an ultimate right and potency to live a satisfying life. For some reasons, in order to protect ourselves we ignore, decline or discount these rights - we don't permit ourselves to use them. I am interested in supporting you in getting more insight and knowledge about yourself to help you live a more fulfilling and creative life.

I can help you with a range of problems, such as:

  • Difficulties in relating with others
  • Depression, anxiety, emotional pain
  • Stress related to work, life decisions and changes
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Trauma, Abuse

I bring to my work sensitivity, humour and appreciation of the natural world. I think that we change gradually and have unexplored parts just like nature. I offer you my genuine interest in the uniqueness of an individual story and dedication to the journey of discovery.
