About me

It takes courage to talk to someone, and I promise a professional and confidential approach.

What I offer

A down to earth way of working and over 15 year's therapeutic experience:

  • Wholeheartedly supports you in facing your life's challenges and provides emotional support through tough times
  • Compassionately challenges self-limiting beliefs and encourages you to be kind to yourself
  • Helps you to discover unexplored resources and offers new psychological tools
  • Gives you the opportunity to respond freshly to your challenges.

Some of the issues people have brought to me previously:

  • relationship difficulties (individuals and couples)
  • parenting challenges
  • unresolved childhood issues, including emotional, physical and sexual abuse
  • low self-esteem, self-criticism and loss of confidence
  • depression, anxiety, panic attacks, overwhelm, lack of support
  • change, bereavement and loss
  • lack of meaning or purpose in life

About myself

  • Over 15 years experience as a therapist within private practice and the NHS, social services, and prisons.
