About me

I understand taking the first step can be difficult, I offer a safe, non judgmental space to explore the issues that have been troubling you. We will agree the focus of the work from the outset and keep this in mind throughout the journey together. We will work together to facilitate change in the areas you feel are needed.

I work with Individuals on many issues on a weekly basis.
I offer couple and relationship counselling which is offered on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
i am currently undertaking a diploma in psychosexual therapy.

If you have issues around weight or Obesity ,I run a 10 week therapy group, which will help you to explore and understand your weight and why you make the choices you do. Please call or email for more information.
