About me

THERAPY FOR ADULTS      Please scroll down if you are considering Therapy for a child

I seek to develop trust and a sense of safety, so that you feel comfortable enough to open up & talk about what you have been/are experiencing. I offer a calm, supportive space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I provide empathy, so that you may share your feelings without fear of judgment.

I can support you, to deepen your understanding of the impact of your life experiences and your emotional needs. This understanding can help you to make decisions about things you may wish to change. I can help you develop ways to manage and process feelings, develop self awareness  and live a fulfilling life.

I offer the choice of both talk therapy and working creatively. Creative therapy includes art therapy, but can also include working with dreams or visualisation, writing or music. If this appeals to you or you are curious to learn more, please take a look at my website.

A free Initial Session
I offer a 30 minute initial session. I do not charge for this, as it is an opportunity for you to meet me in person and see how we might work together.



You may be concerned that there has been a noticeable change in your child's mood, behaviour or both.

I seek to develop a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship with a child.

I offer child-centered play and art therapy. ​My therapy room is equipped with a range of toys, objects and art materials. Child-centered therapy involves being alongside a child whilst they play or create artwork. The child chooses and leads the activity and how much they wish me to be involved
