About me

I am a qualified CBT therapist and I practise an integrative approach to therapy based on the foundation of first and foremost, forming an honest, safe, genuine, transparent and non judgemental connection that will allow us to work well together.

Through my experience of working with clients, I know the courage involved in taking the first step into therapy.  This courage will be rewarded with meaningful change, as we work together to achieve your goals.

There is a fundamental and profound connection between our head, body,heart, mind and spirit. So in my work with clients, I appreciate the deep complexity which creates problems. I will work with you to ensure that we create the right conditions to resolve and heal the original issues as well as any related issues that emerge through our therapy.

Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as a main basis of therapy, we can work to get to the core of the issue. Understand what has created the problem and the action that needs to be taken to affect positive and enduring change. My approach to therapy/counselling is grounded in the principle that it is the building of trust between us that will offer a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your issues, with me alongside you. I am an integrative therapy practitioner and constantly embrace many of the leading-edge, innovative approaches to guide people in resolving their issues more quickly and thoroughly.

Please feel free to call for an initial chat and we can take things from there.
