My approach

I provide short and long-term psychotherapy and counselling for adults and young people aged 16 or above.

I work holistically, embracing the mind, body and soul. I create a safe, confidential space to explore and understand your feelings and situations through talking or expressive art-making.

Through this, you will develop a deeper understanding of yourself, gain strength to face life’s challenges, and increase your resilience and sense of wellbeing.

Training, qualifications and experience

I have 20 years’ clinical experience working in the NHS, charities and private practice.
