About me

When life is difficult I offer that important safe, supportive space. Telling your story and being heard by an impartial, caring and non-judgemental person can be a healing experience in itself. Then our role together will be to discover and remove the blocks in your life and find what you need to grow.

Based upon a relationship of care and support, I draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches, integrating them into a mix that is right for you. Insights may emerge by talking openly for the first time, or being heard in a new way with skilled questions to bring understanding. We will explore emotions and, since emotions are expressed in the body, it can be helpful to notice physical responses to problems.

I have a comfortable, dedicated therapy room where confidentiality is guaranteed. For those times when we need more than talk, or when talk is hard, I have a range of creative ways of working, including charts, photographs, postcards and music, and any suggestions of your own emerging from our discoveries.
