About me and my therapy practice

I am passionate about mental well-being for all.  I offer a safe and confidential space for clients to work through issues and gain a greater insight into their lives.  My work is underpinned by the principles of the person-centred approach; empathy, non-judgement and genuineness.  However, my diverse training and experience allows me to work in a deliberately integrative way, therefore when appropriate, I use activities, worksheets, creative materials and objects.  I believe effective communication can be attained through many mediums.  Ultimately, every session is adapted uniquely to each individual client.  As well as working with adults, I have extensive experience of working with older teens and young adults.
