I’m here to help you navigate your way through the many different chapters of your life. At times, our lives can become turbulent, problematic and often painful. By working together I can help you to overcome some of these difficulties that life brings.
I help adults, young people and children who may be experiencing challenging or a tough time.
It may be something that is happening now, or something that happened in your past that is still affecting your life today.
It could also be some daily struggles, such as, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, or you may be questioning 'am I good enough?'.
I can support you as you explore and cross these challenges, to walk alongside you, as you navigate your way through each stage to find possible solutions.
You can continue to enjoy living your life to your full potential. I will help you to find emotional freedom.
Let me tell you a little bit about me (without too much jargon!):
I am a Psychotherapist and Therapeutic Counsellor. I help adults, young people and children with a wide range of issues.
The foundations of my training are to work within a person centred / humanistic modality, which means the relationship between the client and the therapist is always about you.
However, through my extensive training, I use a range of therapeutic modalities within my private practice. I am constantly updating my skills and training, which ensures understanding the latest research methods within the industry.
I have over 20 years experience working within the health and wellness industry. I offer therapeutic workshops and courses online, within the community and businesses on a wide range of subjects.
Alongside private practice, I am a Funeral Celebrant. I help families to prepare to say goodbye to their loved one. I create and deliver funerals which are a celebration of a persons life.
I am an ADHD Educator, ADHD Specialist Coach, a Public Speaker and I regularly write articles for various newspapers, magazines and TV.
