About me and my therapy practice

Online video (via Zoom), telephone and email counselling available to promote social distancing at this current time.

I have training & experience in Integrative Counselling, CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I work with adults, young people and families. My approach is flexible & adaptive to meet your individual needs. I aim to help clients accept what they can't change and commit to what is important to them, to make life as rich and meaningful as possible. You will be welcome into a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
