About me

We all face ups and downs in life, and sometimes it's hard to see our way through those difficult times. As a Therapist my aim is to help people bring 20:20 vision to their life challenges.

I use a varied range of talking therapies to support people with either short or long term therapy. I work in a non-judgemental and compassionate way, providing a safe, comfortable and confidential environment for clients.
