About me

Are you looking to find someone to share your experiences with and help explore different areas of your life?

I offer a confidential, understanding and supportive therapeutic relationship to individuals seeking someone with whom they can explore their difficulties, make sense of their experiences and find different ways of doing things.

To achieve this I practice using Transactional Analysis theory which is a model that helps us to engage with our feelings, thoughts and behaviour and move towards making real and positive changes in our lives.

I believe that fundamentally we all have the capacity to change given the right support and insight in to what is going on for us. I have personal experience of therapy and recognise the journey can be hard but the result for me is that I am more grounded, able to make better decisions for myself and live a richer life.

I work from a private and comfortable room in my home which offers privacy and a safe place to clients.

It can be quite daunting when you are looking for a therapist and I understand you are likely to be experiencing some struggles before committing to that next step. That is why I welcome new clients with an initial free first session to see if you would like to start the therapy journey with me.
