I can only imagine what has led you to seeking support and want to assure you that my practice is both ethical within the regulatory BACP guidelines and centred around my clients and their needs.
I would like to offer you an appointment to come and meet me and experience my calm, confidential and caring therapy space. This is for you and I to identify what areas you may like to work on in therapy and if you chose to work together with me to make sure I have the experience to work with the issues you may be facing.
We look together at what you would like to work towards improving or altering the coping strategies you already have in place to enhance the way you manage.

As well as have a range of neurological conditions (with or without diagnosis) including ASD, ADHD, ADD, Aspergers, Bipolar and parents, carers or relatives that have children with these conditions as well as working with them at times of trying to gain a disgnosis.
I was trained in a Humanistic approach to counselling at the well known Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute Limited it is renowned for its rigorous and comprehensive training which has equipped me to appreciate and value everyone as an individual especially in how they experience different situations and what they may need from relationships.
I also work Integratively which allows me to bring in alternative theories that fit best with you and your individual needs of working together towards your goals, this includes creative ways to help unlock where there may not be words or for individuals who prefer a practical way of working.
