About me and my therapy practice

I am a trained Person-Centred Counsellor which means that I believe that there is only one expert on you, and that is yourself. I will work closely with you to find a unique solution tailored just for you, that helps you to achieve your desired results. I also have training and experiences outside of the Person-Centred approach which give me access to tools and techniques which I can call upon to assist you in find a way forward if necessary.


I have a great deal of experience working with people with all manner of issues but have a particular strength in working with individuals that have suicidal thoughts, anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, have anger issues, have been bereaved (particularly by suicide), have suffered traumas, experience PTSD or complex PTSD and people that have experienced domestic abuse and or domestic violence.
