About me

I have been involved in therapeutic work with adults and children for over 10 years.
Before counselling I was a foster carer looking after children from newborns up to 16 years and also worked supporting parents with challenging behaviour presented by their children.

I have delivered training and presentations to help other foster carers understand the needs of children who have experienced trauma and those with attachment disorders. I also have a good understanding of caring for children on the ASD and with sensory integration issues.

I have my own adult children and two teenagers formerly foster children.

I offer counselling using a range of differing techniques particularly person centred and psychodynamic approaches. I offer a client focused method tailored to suit the individual and their needs including WALKEASE which is a unique approach taking therapy out of the therapy room and into the open air.
