Areas of Special Interest
I see people with a wide range of issues including stress/overwhelm, anxiety, depression, self-worth, grief, social isolation, mistrust, trauma, addictions, parenting children with special needs, relationship issues, separations and divorce.
I offer both short-term counselling focusing on specific issues and longer-term psychotherapy. If you are frustrated with repeating old patterns of behaving and feeling, then psychotherapy can make a big difference to your life. Working on a deeper level provides permanent change.
I have experience working with teenagers, helping them through the transitions of life and the various difficulties that come up around this time.
I provide a warm, safe environment where we can overcome your issues by helping you to understand the root causes, improving your well-being and mental health.
