I have worked with young people (aged 12-19 years old) for 2-3 years helping with the many challenging issues that arise. I have also worked within the NHS environment and NICE guidelines for 8 years with adults, as well as running my own successful practice.
I thoroughly enjoy what I do and how rewarding it can be making a difference to someone's life and seeing the growth and change emerge through self exploration and commitment to the sessions.
I always aim to create a relaxed environment whereby you are made to feel comfortable and safe, listened to and heard.
