I offer a holistic, person centred approach working with my clients to support them to understand the challenges they face and how to move beyond them in a way that is congruent with their needs.
I work with individuals and families across the lifespan and have extensive experience of working with children with emotional well-being difficulties, behavioural difficulties, and trauma. I also have a special interest in working with people with long-term health conditions.
