About me

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society. MNCS (Accred).

The world is a very challenging place, particularly now. We never know what will emerge to test our resolve and wellbeing. When those episodes arise, it is often difficult to understand and make sense of what is going on. I offer a safe and confidential space where we can come together in a therapeutic setting to work through matters which are affecting you.

My clinical experience includes a wide range of presenting issues including anxiety, abuse, depression, addiction, stress and relationship difficulties. I come from a background of four decades in public service where I have managed trauma in the highest profile settings.

I care passionately about the power of healing through our darkest of times and can bring a depth of experience and mutual empathy. I will join you and work with your feelings. I will help unravel their complexities and can assist you in understanding your thoughts and taking you to a place where you can effect positive change for yourself.
