About me and my therapy practice

At time our lives become stuck. I am passionate about offering people the chance to move on with their emotional needs.

As your therapist I offer you the support through a caring therapeutic relationship where you can explore your problems. The therapy may lead you on a journey to help give you insight into your life as it is now and how you can bring change to your life in a positive way.

I have worked as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist for seventeen years. I am also a qualified supervisor supervising student counsellors and counsellors. I also help companies who require help with employee supervision.

I have worked in education for 30 years. I am very experienced in working with children who have emotional and behavioural difficulties.

I work as a Resorative Justice Practitioner for Young Offenders in Somerset.

I work with companies and their employee's locally and around the country. I will help you get the best out of your employee's. 

I also offer Mindfulness, Supervision, Bereavement Support and Positive Change Groups to help employee's and schools bring together a positive change in the environment.

I am also available to help employers with Covid 19.
