About me

Well done, it can be really hard to take the first step to want to change something.
I have seen many different people, but all looking for the same thing, something different from their life, whether it is relationship/s, work / career or business.

I am a professionally qualified Integrative therapist, this means I can vary my approach to meet your individual needs with a variety of theories and interventions, these same theories and interventions have been instrumental in my own life creating a passion to work with you to understand what is going on from your perspective to be with you without judgement, but respecting you as an individual in an open, honest, confidential and safe environment.

How can I help?

The Service I deliver focuses on you gaining insight from your life so far and how it has affected you through your beliefs, thoughts, feelings and behaviour today. Gaining these insights and understanding allows you to take control of your life more fully and make the positive changes you want to make.
