About me and my therapy practice

I have a diverse professional background, and draw upon a rich tapestry of life experience in my work with individuals and professionals.

I am currently undertaking training as a solution focused hypnotherapist, which further enhances my skills as a therapist.

Are you feeling uncertain and fearful about the future? Do you feel stuck? Anxious? Angry? Hopeless? Depressed? Are you unable to sleep at night? Are you coping in ways that are harming you, your mind, your body, your family, your future or your finances? These coping methods can often be driven by negative emotions and toxic thinking patterns. I listen without judgement, in complete confidence and safety. I use an integrative, person centred approach, utilising wisdom from several schools of psychotherapy and counselling, including transactional analysis, brief solution focused, psychodynamic and behavioural ideas including DBT.

Practice description

I have worked within the field of substance misuse and mental health for over 15 years. If you are struggling with any type of dependency or have concerns about a partner/family member, please contact me. Having a supportive professional who can help you to understand and evaluate your unique situation can be a vital part of your recovery.

My treatment approach is collaborative. It honours you as an individual, your feelings, and your unique style of self-expression, placing great emphasis and value on the therapeutic relationship. We will work together to identify your goals for therapy. Then, I will assist you to work towards your goals in a way that makes sense and feels “right” for you.
