About me and my therapy practice

You may have experienced loss, trauma or shock that makes life difficult but you are uncertain how to recover from this. You may be unsure why your life and relationships are difficult or unfulfilling. You may have already had some counselling or therapy and wonder how to take your learning forward. Whatever your starting point you can contact me to discuss how we can identify resources and understanding that makes a difference. Benefits from time with a skilled and knowledgeable therapist can include improved mood, greater resilience and hope for the future

I am a person centred therapist which means I believe in your ability to recover and repair from difficult experiences. I use my training, experience, understanding and insight to offer you the support you need to get there. This may include short term work to resolve a particular issue or longer term work at a deeper level. I work with adults and children

Any big change in life offers challenges and opportunities. It can be hard to see the opportunities when the challenges are so big. If you are finding it difficult to cope with caring responsibilities, trauma, abuse, emotional issues including anger, anxiety, depression or loss of any kind, talk to a respectful and caring professional about the way forward
