About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome.

I offer 1-2-1 therapy sessions in persons or online.

I usually see children in person in my cosy office where I have a sandplay tray, pencils, colouring in pens, paper and many, many objects.

I am an Integrative counseller and tend to use person centred techniques with all ages. Whether you are 7 or 77 or older or younger than that, i' m equally fine with that.

Usually I first tell you about how I work and what you can expect from me and from counselling.

I have lots of experience with the following issues:





Eating issues

Mild learning difficulties 

Work related issues

Just to name a few ( see the list below for more expertise).

If you are facing one or more of the above issues, I am aware you are in need of counselling. 

Please feel free to ask me questions about my counselling by email or telephone text or call me.
