About Me

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist & Counsellor, with over 12 years’ experience. My career background is generic and I offer therapy in most areas. I have worked with adults, couples and children.

I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment in which to explore clients thought and feelings, to help them move beyond your perceived limitation and realise a client’s full potential.

I use a humanistic approach with all my clients, to ensure they get the support required. I am I.A.H.I.P certified since September 2012.

Having 6 years’ experience in working with Rape and sexual violence, it’s an area I’am truly passionate about and interests me greatly.
