About me

I offer individual sessions for adults or children

I believe therapy provides a space where we can talk about what really matters to us and how we think and feel. I aim to provide a warm thoughtful and attentive presence in the sessions which enables a client to feel safe to speak openly.

The key areas where many people have difficulties are relationships with others, dealing with difficult situations or traumatic events, and having an understanding of themselves, who they are, what they want from life.

What I enjoy about being a therapist is seeing people learning to understand and accept themselves, and developing the courage to make the changes they want in order to be happier.

My style is interactive and with children I use play, art materials and stories in my therapeutic work..

Therapy can be challenging, funny, serious and ultimately, hopefully, life affirming.

From my life experiences I am particularly interested in working with creativity, relationships, bereavement, parenting, and how we hold emotions physically.

Further information

Our first session will also act as a two way assessment meeting to see if we feel comfortable working together, at this stage there’s no commitment to continue. We can choose to work for a set number of sessions to focus on an area of main concern, or it can be open ended.

When working with children I structure in periodic separate sessions with the parent for feedback.
