About me

I have many years experience working in the caring professions, I completed a post graduate diploma in Social Work and spent time working with the elderly and disabled.

In recent years I decided to train in psychotherapy after experiencing the benefits of this process for myself. As I have been through therapy myself, I know how difficult it can be to begin this process, but have also experienced the great benefits.  I like to work using our relationship, and do this in a warm and empathic way. I believe that the therapist and client come together as a team to work through issues that may stand in the way of you reaching your potential. Through the training, I have mainly used Transactional Analysis, but also have some experience working in a solution-focussed way and like to work integratively as each person is an individual who may like to work in a different way.

As a therapist I offer one-to-one confidential counselling and psychotherapy. I am experienced in working with clients who are struggling with:

- Depression
- Stress
- Anxiety
- Low self-esteem
- Relationship issues
- Childhood issues
- Stress in the workplace
