Whatever you’re facing, you deserve a calm and quiet space and someone to listen, to get alongside you and to help you to find your way through. Someone who won’t judge you and to whom you can tell it like it is, whatever it is; who’ll help you heal and flourish again.
I’m an integrative therapist. That means I’ve trained using a range of therapeutic models and philosophies and I will gently work with you to find an individual approach that feels right for you.
I’ve done the training (and I’m always doing more) and read the books, but it’s not psychobabble, and it’s not staring back at you at you like a wall. It’s human and it’s real – you’ll find me compassionate, straightforward, genuine and fully focused on looking for ways to help you make sense of things and move forward. My aim is to help you discover the answers you need – because you do deserve to feel better.
I see adults over 18. I’m especially committed to hearing and helping to support those who might feel marginalised, neglected or who are the subject of prejudice in modern society, including people of colour, trans and queer people, people with disabilities, refugees and asylum seekers.
