About me and my therapy practice
Life is difficult, sometimes overwhelmingly so. At times of distress we often feel at our most isolated; we may find it hard to see beyond our immediate unhappiness and to draw on our inner resources. Seeing a therapist can be helpful, providing a safe and enquiring space to explore, find our footing again and grow from our challenges. Therapy may not always feel easy, but at its best it can be supportive, empowering and liberating.
Taking the initial step of contacting a therapist can be scary but as an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist I trust that I am able to “meet you where you are" and provide a safe, non-judgemental space to work collaboratively with you and to explore ways to help you move forward.
I am trained to work with adults and am also a qualified child psychotherapist.
If you feel that there are difficulties in your life or that your children are struggling in their own journeys to adulthood I would be happy to meet to talk further about how I might be of help.
