About

Having undergone therapy myself I appreciate the importance of finding a therapist whom is able to facilitate a safe, warm and confidential environment to support the exploration of your story. I have worked with an array of clients whom have accessed therapy for varying reasons that they feel are inhibiting them from living an authentic life. My role within the therapeutic relationship is to work alongside an individual to facilitate self-exploration and consider alternative routes that may lay before them. I offer individual, group, relationship and family therapy. Please follow the link to my website for further information about these services in more detail. I have extensive knowledge of addiction in all of its forms and have worked with both those in the depths of their addiction as well as those whom are in recovery and have also supported friends and family members too.
Factors such as underlying mental health conditions, pain management for physical conditions and coping with emotional difficulties are contributing factors for substance misuse to commence, whether that be prescription or illicit. Often gaining insight into addictive behaviour facilitates an individual to regain a sense of control.
Im currently working using zoom, telephone, instant messaging, email and letter correspondence. Email, instant message and letter correspondence can be valuable if you enjoy the process of writing and reflecting, you may feel more comfortable as a way of expressing yourself without being seen and recognise you need support to make sense of your thoughts.
