About me

My aim is to provide a supportive environment and work with you to explore where you are at and where you want to be. I am led by you and I am integrative in my approach. Together we can consider the bigger picture and how what we have experienced influences what we are experiencing. I am non-judgemental, down to earth and relaxed.

I am a qualified Counselling Psychologist with a background of working with a range of individuals, mental health difficulties and with individuals with long term health conditions.  I am able to help people with a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, self esteem difficulties, relationship difficulties, dealing with transitions and a huge range of other difficulties.  Working with individuals entering a new stage in their lives, such as with relationships or in education is a particular area of interest.

I work from a number of different settings to meet the demands of a clients location and the time constraints of life.  I am able to offer evening appointments.
