About me

In these extraordinary and uncertain times it is important to stay connected and to talk - I am currently working online and by phone to support and help clients.

Do you sometimes struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, sadness, depression, stress or a lack of confidence? Does it sometimes feel like other people are more sorted than you are?  Do you keep repeating the same old patterns? Just want it to stop? Together we can look at where these patterns began by exploring your past experiences and relationships in a safe, non-judgemental environment. It might be that you have a serious problem that you need help with right now .... using time-focussed therapy, tailored to your needs, we can work through that problem and come up with tools and strategies that can help you to find a solution.

I am passionate about personal development, particularly in the awareness and understanding of the relationship between past trauma, repressed emotion, anxiety and depression. I am curious about the mind/body connection as part of my approach and will share that curiosity with you. I can support you in either short-term or long-term therapy to navigate and explore any difficulties you may be facing.

You've taken a big step by even thinking about getting help - I know how difficult just doing that can be. The next step is to make contact and talk through with me how we can work together. I understand that change can be daunting yet something may need to change - I can support and guide you as you negotiate the obstacles that may be causing problems or holding you back.
