About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my profile!

You may not know why you feel the way you do; it may be that you lack confidence and feel like you are not good enough. You may have experienced Trauma (Small T and or big T) as a child and (or) as an adult.

Life can be challenging and seeking counselling takes courage.

I'm here to provide you with a safe and compassionate space where we can work together to explore life's challenges. No matter what reason has brought you here, my aim is to help you navigate through life's ups and downs and make sense of things with empathy and understanding.

It could be that someone may have hurt you, or you have hurt another. I believe in the power of human connection and the potential for healing and growth.

My further training, experience and research has allowed me to approach therapy from a holistic perspective, recognising that mental, emotional, and physical well-being are interconnected.
