About me

Available to listen and to help, at short notice if necessary, when life becomes overwhelming.

Most of us have challenges thrown at us at some point in our lives, and that is often the moment we choose to look more closely at how we could make our lives better in some way.
I believe that happiness doesn't always come naturally to people - but that there are many ways in which many of us can learn to have more satisfying lives.

Whatever your circumstances, your life can usually be improved, by looking at the things that don't work for you, and attempting to change them - in a one-to-one setting.

I am a humanistic psychotherapist, and draw on a variety of different therapeutic approaches, and I'm equally happy to work on short-term issues or enter into long term therapy with a client.

I have several grown-up children, so I understand the pressures of bringing up children, and I am also divorced so have experienced life as a one-parent family.

I worked for many years as a funeral celebrant, and am happy to work with newly bereaved people or people who are close to death.

I have experiencing of worked with groups and individuals from hugely diverse backgrounds.
