About

I provide diagnostic asssessments to children 6yr+ & Counselling services to individuals aged 13yrs+. I have a keen interest in working with depression, anxiety (generalised and social), anger, excessive gaming and perinatal anxiety and depression in men. I also have an interest in supporting clients through big life transitions, relationship difficulties and enjoys working with neurodiverse adolescents & adults. I also enjoy working with males and reducing the stigma associated with men seeking help.
I am trained in the assessment of Autism, ADHD and Specific Learning Difficulties. I provide counselling integrating elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Schema Therapy. I take a person centred approach and aim to help my clients in a collaborative, non-judgemental and empathetic manner.
I understand how hard it can sometimes be to seek help and if you have read this profile and feel like we could be a good match, feel free to reach out and hopefully we can work together towards your goals.
