About me

I know therapy can help because it helped me. By accessing this directory you have already taken the first step. Have a look at your options of therapists in your area; and don’t be shy to perhaps meet a few of us until you find the right one for you.

My approach, initially, is very much about listening to you, understanding how you perceive your world and the topics/issues you might bring. Each client is different and unique and so is the way I work. For instance, you might just need a space to talk things through and reflect on your options and direction or you might want to focus on solutions to help you with a particular topic/issue or you might wish to explore past experiences/traumas with creative interventions.

I offer sessions with or without my Pet As Therapy (PAT) golden retriever. He is a calming, often soothing presence in the room and if you opt to meet him; please be prepared for an enthusiastic greeting.

I work with adults of all ages and also with young people (14+). The most important thing I find is that our sessions feel right for you. You might get a glimpse of that on first meeting and then hopefully it may develop further on the following sessions.

Part of the work I do is to help you to get in touch with what is right and important to you. Often we want a break from what is burdensome but we might be unsure what we could have/achieve instead. I find that clients are often surprised when they allow time and space to reflect and explore their own lives. An idea(s), solutions, direction, a renewed strength to enrich their lives is often found.

I do work from a perspective that challenges, struggles, difficulties and trauma can also be perceived as an opportunity for change and growth. I would be honoured if you decide to undertake such exploration with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over10 years of experience and training in a therapeutic setting. I have formal qualifications in Integrative Counselling (Adv. Dip.
