I am an experienced Psychotherapist working with individuals to make sense of feelings, thoughts, and behaviours. I have developed my practice to support a range of issues including trauma, anxiety, stress, self-harm, self-esteem and confidence.
I work in an integrative way, meaning I integrate appropriate therapeutic approaches tailored to meet your needs. I believe in building our working relationship to enable trust and openness, supporting you to explore new possibilities and choices. I work with young people (age eleven plus) and adults.
During the current COVID-19 situation all therapy is conducted online through Zoom.
Getting Started: Call or email me to set up a session and we can chat through what you are looking for and how therapy can support you. We can then agree the next steps together.
