About me

Welcome to my profile!

It is not always that easy to talk through how we are really feeling to those around us. Sometimes we don’t want to burden them. Or they just won’t understand. What I offer is safe, confidential, and professional. Just giving you the opportunity to explore any issues or problems you could be experiencing without condemnation or judgement. Helping you to live your life to your full potential

I have a track record of working with clients where I look at the underlying causes and not just what is happening in your life right now, how you are feeling and the issues you are facing. I will help you understand why you feel or behave the way you do. I will support you and provide you with tools for your life. This will help you to live your life beyond therapy.

I also work Holistically, looking at everything that affects you. This would be what you think and feel, your self-worth, your health, your surroundings and the people in your life etc. For example, when your health or nutrition is poor it affects how you feel about yourself. It could make you feel depressed, affecting your self-esteem.

I understand that taking the first steps for help could be daunting, but people would describe me as warm, friendly and down to earth. I also offer free 30 minute, telephone consultation to help you understand how I work and how I can help you. So, you are in safe hands.
