Hello. I have provided counselling and psychotherapy services to individuals, couples and groups since 2006. I also offer supervision and mediation services. I believe in the intrinsic ability of all individuals to create a contented life for themselves. With this in mind I aim to support and facilitate clients to achieve their goals.
Contact me if you would like to book an appointment, ask questions or have an informal chat before deciding if you'd like to book.
All the best with whatever you decide.

In the year 2000 I went to see a therapist as I was not happy with my life and was dealing with a second bout of depression. I was so pleased with the results that I started training to be a therapist myself so I could share the benefits with others. I'd tried dozens of self-help books, spiritual paths and other ways to feel content, and although they all have their merits nothing quite hit the mark like therapy did.
I have been in therapy ever since with various therapists offering many modalities of therapy. I continue to grow, develop and learn and hope to continue this process throughout my life.
Trust your judgement about picking the right therapist for you.
All the best,
