About me and my therapy practice

Life can be tough, confusing, distressing and dark. Both our circumstances and our past experiences can make it hard for us to see our way clearly. In this busy world it's hard to have the space and time to work out our path, or find anyone to notice we are lost. And sometimes we can think that nobody can help or that our problems don't matter. Or maybe we feel embarrassed or even ashamed of not being able to find our own way, or of losing our way in the first place. And though I believe we all do have the power to make the choices that are best to guide us, sometimes we need a trained professional to help us through the maze. In the safety of my private therapy room, I will offer you a non-judgmental space where we can explore the challenges and difficulties you are facing. We can then gently take the time you need to look at some of the options open to you. Hopefully, at the right pace for you, we will together find what you need and I can help you get to a brighter more peaceful state of mind.
