About me

My aim is to help you to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviour, find clarity and support you to find ways of coping that work for you. You may be experiencing anxiety; have a dilemma or important decision to make; you may have experienced a distressing event that you are struggling to come to terms with or make sense of; your problems may be many, built up over a period of time and you are wondering why you are struggling to cope now, when you have always managed before.

I offer a welcoming, confidential and therapeutic space where you can talk to me about any matter that causes you concern.
