About me

Please see:

For: A style of counselling tailored to your needs.

I work in an integrative way, and also creatively (sand-tray, expressive-arts, holistic)

  • Self-esteem and 'feel-good' work.
  • Relationship and family work.
  • 'Mindfulness' for all.
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
  • CBT.
  • Person Centred.

My counselling is about finding out what YOU need and facilitating the changes you desire.
