About me

I have a wide experience of counselling which has provided me with an extensive range of therapeutic approaches that I can use to best effect ,when working with Individuals. Working in a GP s surgery with referred patients for depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, trauma, grief, etc provided with a confident approach to any individuals challenges.

The university student support service required a differing approach when counselling stressed and anxious students.Accepting support was often the main challenge.

The perinatal service attracted a vast range of young mums and their partners. Many past traumas arose through the counselling work which required resolution where ever possible.Depression, anxiety, fear, current and past abuse were integrated with the challenges of early parenthood. Difficulties in coping day to day destroyed self confidence and individual identities which was totally unexpected for the new mums and dads.

Within my own practice I deal with whatever the individual presents as their perceived  life changing challenges.
