About me and my therapy practice

Home Visiting Mental Health Support

A therapist since 2004, I hold the strong belief that positive change is possible through small shifts in our perception.

Stress closes down our ability to think straight so we can't 'see the wood for the trees'.  Often we don't realise the stress we are under until it becomes crippling.  It is at that moment that we acknowledge our need for help, but where to turn?

For myself in such times I have struggled to trust my vulnerability with anyone.  Therapy, described as a process, starts with the decision, however wary, to trust another, to reach out for help.

My own fear was not to be judged, so I say to you now that I won't judge you.  I will use my training to hold all that you choose to share in a confidential, safe and boundaried way, leaving you free to benefit from my experience as a therapist, and as a human being.

Compassion, kindness and caring what happens to you, are the corner stones of my practice.  My desire to build a trusting relationship with you is paramount to your process and the small shifts in perceptions you will make from it.

Light bulb moments of realisation through understanding yourself and your relationships help to lift the darkness, one shade at a time.

If I am your therapist, I make an emotional commitment to your process, your journey, your recovery.  Mine is the hand that reaches out to you, inviting you to trust my professional integrity, my life experiences, and my deep desire to lift  you up when you don't feel you have the energy or the will to stand alone,
