About

I understand how difficult it can be to take the first step when looking for support but please be assured that I will do all I can to put you at ease. I am experienced in a wide range of issues, supporting clients from all walks of life including personnel from the emergency services. I offer a secure, confidential and professional relationship in the privacy of regular, reliable sessions. I also work as Clinical Lead with 13-25 year olds in a young persons service. My approach is holistic, in that I am interested in "the whole person".
My approach is holistic, in that I am interested in "the whole person", and I often encourage clients to examine aspects of their overall lifestyle, such as health, diet and exercise, to assist and support the psychological and emotional changes they are making I practice integrative psychotherapy.
I have trained in several models of therapy. I draw from a psychodynamic, humanistic and person-centred approach which allows me to offer the type of therapy, or combination of therapies, that is most appropriate for the particular needs of each client. I provide a safe, warm, relaxed environment.
