AD Therapy

Area’s of special interest

  • Neurodiversity
  • Autism
  • Sexual trauma
  • Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Self development


I have a special area of interest in helping clients with (or suspected of having) ADHD/ADD. Neurodiversity can come with its own set of challenges, sometimes what is expected to be simple struggles are more difficult for those with ADHD/ADD. If you have had a diagnosis (or self diagnosis) later in life there are often a lot of complicated feelings and emotions that arise. Sometimes there are other issues such as relationship struggles, family struggles, depression, anxiety, trauma and a lot more. ADHD/ADD can impact on several area’s of a person’s life including home, work and social life. My knowledge and understanding of ADHD/ADD can help clients to explore their issues and come to a deeper understanding of themselves and how to make changes in their lives that work for them.

Therapy services

I provide a safe and non-judgmental space so you can explore your thoughts and feelings freely. Everyone’s therapy needs are different so I will work together with you to find out what your goals are for therapy and how you would like to move forward. I have a strong focus on building a safe and strong connection with my clients. We will work together so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and your thoughts and values, this will help towards building a better relationship with yourself and others.

Therapy approach

I am a trained counsellor and I use a range of modalities and tools to meet the needs of my clients. I am a client centered therapist which means I hold a lot of focus on the trust and rapport I build with my clients. I sit alongside my clients to help them navigate their journey. I may also include modalities such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), gestalt therapy, art therapy and strength-based approaches. This all depends on the needs of my client.

About me

I have a deep passion for working with people. I enjoy spending time with my family and in my spare time I will be out spending time with my horses, in the garden (or trying to save it!) or reading a good book. I also enjoy gaming and being out in nature.
