I trained with Place2be and Tic+. I'm friendly, flexible and never judge, always offering understanding and empathy. I specialise in working with young people but have many adult clients too. My approach is unique with each client factoring in development, chronological ages. I work interactively, person centred yet directively, creatively integrating arts/games therapies with CBT. Finding an individual way to connect to every client is essential and finding humour, where appropriate, can go a long way to heal. I work to help children and teens understand their behaviours and motivations and challenge perspectives whilst being very much on their level!

It’s normal to feel apprehensive about therapy and not knowing what to expect. I will do everything I can to make you feel welcome, at ease and heard. Confidentiality is paramount and I hold young peoples beliefs, wellbeing and opinions at the heart of everything I do. I can also do family work and there is no obligation after initial consultation.
