About

I am flexible and able to work with both males and females. Age does not preclude me from seeing someone. I am accepting of anyone who is looking for someone to listen to them and will give them a voice. I worked in Samaritans and Lifeline for 20 years as a centre supervisor, trainer and shift supervisor. I have recently been working with addiction and the family of the addict and am able to hold you in a safe space as you become self aware and self accepting.
My experience is in trauma, addiction and crisis. I evaluate what the client needs together with them and will use various different therapies that will help them begin to manage themselves.
I have a passion to help people to begin to like and accept who they are. I love to help them learn to cope with their challenges.
