About me

I qualified as a Counsellor in 2001 and have counselled within the private, public and voluntary sectors. I trained as an integrative therapist in 2000 at St John's University in York. I completed my Masters at the University of Manchester in Counselling Studies thereafter progressing on to the Professional Doctoral Program In Counselling Studies.

I work with clients experiencing a range of emotional and mental health difficulties. My integrative approach is very holistic, encompassing the psychological, emotional, behavioural, religious and spiritual elements of the human being.
