About

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, miserable or unable to live the life you want? It can be difficult to make positive changes sometimes. You know you would like things to be different, but it's hard to know where to start. I offer a warm, compassionate, and open approach to understand what you would like to be different. and what is keeping things stuck. Working together with you, I use a range of evidence based approaches to help you move forwards in living the life you want.
I work with people who have a wide range of adjustment issues in life, whether it be anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship or self esteem issues. I also work with people with acquired brain injury, from a car accident, stroke, long Covid or another cause. I also work with people who may be concerned about their memory or have a diagnosis of dementia.
It can be a difficult step to choose a therapist or to contemplate starting therapy. If you are wondering whether we might work well together, or you have questions about the process, you are welcome to email me. I will quickly arrange a time that works for you to speak together in a free 15 minute call, have a chat and answer any questions you might have.
