Counselling/Therapy Services

I have expertise in working with anxiety, trauma, moods disorders that affect children, young people and adults' well being, assertiveness/self esteem, parenting issues, parental separation affecting children, depressive disorders, domestic violence, and behavioural issues. I work with children (in partnership with their parents), adolescents and adults.
