My experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist spans over 20 years working in. variety of settings, here and in Australia. Currently I work in private practice mainly with adults who present with a wide range of issues.

Mindfulness forms a backdrop within which I work, enabling clients to become increasingly aware of themselves and their current difficulties.
