...are perhaps one of the reasons that you are seeking counselling. The fact that you are reading this means that you have already taken an important first step towards getting the help or support that you need.
I have over twenty years of experience working with children, young people and their parents and adults and have worked in many different counselling settings such as agencies, schools and private practice.
In addition to running my private practice I also work in schools offering counselling to students and staff as well as running group sessions. I offer an initial session at a reduced rate where we can discuss your individual needs, giving you the opportunity to ask questions and explore together the best way forward for you. I also offer a limited number of weekend and evening appointments and some concessions.
