About me

Bsc Hons MBACP accredited psychotherapist/counsellor and supervisor. Specialising in relationship difficulties, Anxiety, depression, and disorders. I work with individuals, couples and with families to find a healthy resolution. Working in private practice with GP's, mental health teams and collaborative divorce lawyers.

My work ethic is to help enable others find their true potential, to live life in a purposeful and meaningful way helping individuals find self respect and value.

I also work in a clinic as a therapist, supervisor and clinical assessor, and have worked extensively in a university setting with individuals, couples and groups.

My expertise is working with those experiencing life changing events such as child birth, separation, divorce or marital breakdowns, relationship difficulties, bullying situations in the work place or school, empty nesting loss, retirement and death, anxiety and depression.

I also work as a relational psychodynamic supervisor to experienced therapists offering a well rounded view from a variety of academic and psychotherapeutic sources.
I also work alongside lawyers and have an understanding of the general processes of divorce and the possible routes to move forward should this be the choice.

I began my training in 1995 and through continuous professional development I am able to offer a wealth of experience for clients who encounter a range of personal or situational difficulties.

Relationship difficulties and marriage problems
Family issues/divorce, parent alienation
