Qualifications in BA hons in Psychology and Fine Art, MA in Fine Art, Post Graduate Cert of Education and MA Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My approach to therapy is concerned with individual growth and the relational needs of a person: the self, others we care about and the things we value and need. I aim to assist the person in becoming an authentic and self accepting individual, who can practice choice over whatever life may throw, with kindness, heart and courage.
