We live in times when we are short of time and money. We put off going to the dentist or the doctor because the budget won't stretch that far. we all struggle to find time for ourselves, because life has just become too busy.
I know this not only because that's what many of my clients tell me. So what this tells me is that the time for spending a lot of money and time on therapy is now really a thing of the past.
With that at the forefront of my mind, I have developed successful and respectful ways to get into our task right from our first session and in my experience in working this new way means that number of sessions that clients need to attend is significantly reduced, which means significant time and money savings for my clients and successful outcomes that gives them tools and strategies that will last a lifetime.
I believe that when you come to consult with me that I have a duty of care to make sure that you leave with new and exciting ways of living your life in fulfilling and happy ways even when there are challenges.

I have experience in working with individuals, couples families and working in schools as a counsellor for students and their families and staff.
