I undertake short and long-term psychotherapy, parenting guidance, communication work and assessments. I cover a range of emotional and psychological difficulties with expertise including:
Stress and worry
Bereavement and loss
Anger and behavioural difficulties
Depression and low mood

I have an in-depth understanding of social care and the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). I further provide consultations to professional organisations such as schools, social services and GPs.
Throughout my career, I have gained a reputation for my ability to connect with people from all backgrounds. I have a distinctive warm and approachable style, together with a bright sense of fun which puts children and families at ease. I provide a calm and empathic space, am non directive and follow cues from children of all ages.
