About me

I am experienced therapist having trained 22 years ago, working in several different forums over the years, from health, education, local government and bereavement. I am a private practitioner working from my home, in addition I work part time for a local Youth Counselling Service as the Director. Part of my role includes counselling clients and offering clinical supervision to the volunteers and staff.

In private practice I offer short term therapy if you have a particular issue you wish to focus on or longer term therapy if you wish to make changes at a deeper level. Alternatively therapy can also be used to increase your self awareness in order to live a content and fulfilled life.

As a trained clinical supervisor I offer clinical supervision to students and qualified therapists, both individuals and groups are welcome. I facilitate group workshops on self awareness, body language and basic listening skills, the contents of the group work is self determined.

If you would like to contact me and arrange an appointment I will happy to meet you.
