About me

For many years, I didn't believe in therapy. I thought friends and family could support us through difficulties, and didn't see the need for professional help.

But my views changed when a close friend went through a very painful period in his life, and had counselling. I saw how therapy transformed him, and began to think differently about it. I realised that, while the support of loved ones may be sufficient for some, for many it is invaluable to talk to someone objective, who is professionally trained to help.

As a qualified professional, I provide a nurturing environment which will help you to help yourself. I don't push or direct you – but together we work through the issues that are troubling you.

Coming to terms with your past and present difficulties helps develop a strong sense of self-awareness. By helping you to confront and address problems that affect your life, in your own time and in your own way, unlocks your own powerful resources. My approach is based on the belief that each of us has the ability to live our lives to our full potential.

I work with individuals, couples and groups, both long and short term - and offer individual supervision.

Although each client's situation is unique, some of the issues I work with include:

  • anger management
  • depression and anxiety
  • self-esteem and confidence
  • addictions
  • bereavement and loss
  • eating disorders
  • sexual orientation/identity
  • gambling
  • relationship issues
  • abuse (emotional, physical, sexual)
  • living with HIV/AIDS.
  • Adoption

My Approach

I chose to focus my training on the person-centred approach to therapy, which accords most closely with my own experience and philosophy. This approach provides a nurturing environment which will allow you to fully access your own powerful resources. I believe that working in this way will facilitate the development of greater self-awareness and provide you with the capacity to address your difficulties.
