I am especially interested and experienced working with eating disorders, past trauma  and Covid related grief .

I enjoy teaching mindfulness techniques if there is a need for it.

As a School Counsellor in a Secondary School I work with children and young people when my approach is tailored age appropriately. 

Practice description

My approach to therapy is open, direct and non-judgmental with a compassionate and nurturing attitude. Life can be difficult and painful sometimes as we may face bereavement, illness, relationship breakdown, work dissatisfaction, dilemmas and confusion or other challenges we may encounter.

Each one of us brings our own unique way of being in the world that is : how you see the world and yourself and how you think about your resources (or lack of resources) to cope with life challenges. 

My first session

Getting started

• you can e-mail me and I will aim to call you back within 1-3 days

• we can talk over the phone and I can answer any question you might have. I offer a free telephone consultation to start with

• if you decide that you feel comfortable and want to move forward with me then we can arrange and assessment session

• the assessment session could last upto 90 minutes (usual sessions are 50 minutes) This is a longer session so that we have time to talk about what you would like to get out of therapy and gives me an indication on what kind of therapy I would offer to you

• If you are happy to continue we’ll set up a second session and arrange to meet weekly

• Sometimes myself or a client may feel that another type of therapy may be more suitable to their particular problem in which case I would aim to refer you on to a suitable therapist
