About me

Notice: Therapy will still continue online or via phone, due to Gov recommendations.https://www.nhs.uk/

Hello and welcome
If you have been struggling with a problem however small or large, or any mental health issue, It is possible to find a way through the hardest of times with the right support. You are no longer alone.

My life experience of living within different communities around the world has captured my curiosity - learning and understanding my own journey has supported an understanding of another's’ journey. We all have our own way of seeing and experiencing life and the world, yet we have similarities that bind us as humans. Therapy I see as similar. A place where our differences and similarity can be understood, accepted and respected. The therapy process of raising awareness, enabling clients to gain an understanding and clarity of their internal world can be empowering. knowing a part of your identity can be joy and bring harmony.

I offer a private, safe, confidential environment, where you can begin to find solutions to problems that may otherwise feel unmanageable. For many people being able to talk to someone who is not involved in their everyday life can help in finding different ways to cope, and quite often having an impartial person to talk to can make a significant difference.
