About me

I am a generic adult Counsellor, child and young persons Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I have 18 years experience of working with adults and children covering a variety of issues.

My areas of specialism are; trauma, anxiety, domestic abuse, grief and loss, relational issues, parent and child work, child behavioural problems; adolescent work; looked after children in foster care.

Therapy offered is humanistic.  I offer a range of skills and interventions that are tailored to meet individual needs.  My belief is that people, with the right support, can become empowered to change their lives and overcome the obstacles they are faced with.  This is achieved by being listened to, heard and understood in a safe, accepting and non-judgemental way.  This can be short-term therapy or longer term, depending on the roots of their problems.

I work with children from 2 upwards, offering a range of creative media to help them express their emotions safely.  I help parents gain understanding of the root of their behaviour and can give advice on different parental approaches that could benefit their child.  Children do not need to be articulate to attend.

My work also involves parent and baby work for those who have difficulties in the bonding process.

With young people, talking therapy and creative media can be used, whatever suits them as a way of expression.
