I love what I do and am genuinely interested, engaged and supportive throughout our journey together.  I have a passion for helping people and seeing the positive impact therapy has on my clients’ lives is the very best part of my job.  My clients tell me I am easy to talk to and have a good sense of humour which they find so helpful, especially when things are tough.

My experience is diverse and I can support you to overcome a wide range of distressing problems.  I have also developed some specialist areas of interest through training and experience such as:

  • Anxiety                                                         
  • Low confidence and self-esteem
  • Panic Attacks 
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Depression and low mood
  • Marital and family issues
  • Traumatic experiences 
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Work Stress
  • Disordered eating

I am on your side and offer a safe, accepting, non-judgemental connection to help you find your way forward – your way.

My experience

As well as working in private practice, I provide therapy as a volunteer at a charity supporting individuals whose loved ones have addictions.  I have also been a Samaritans listener for a number of years.

Additionally, I have provided therapy on a voluntary basis specifically supporting men’s mental health and wellbeing.  I believe it is so important to create an environment that helps men to access support and be open about their thoughts and feelings.
