About Me

I am a person-centred/humanistic and integrative therapist, and I work holistically with the whole person. I believe that the most important and helpful elements of therapy are that the therapist has a non-judgemental attitude, is genuine and is able to listen and understand. I also believe that it is important to adapt and collaborate with each client to achieve the best opportunity for effective therapy.

I  offer various ways of working to support you to discover your own inner resources. Where talking  may sometimes feel too challenging, working with creative media can offer a new dimension. Creative therapy uses art, play, sand, sound or just the images inside your own head - and you don't have to be artistic to benefit.  Using creative media can be a very powerful way to work as it can allow unconscious material to surface and be worked through therapeutically.

I have particular experience and interest in working with children and young people.  I have engaged in specialist training, including counselling in a primary school for 5 years, and working with children with complex behaviour issues for a further 6 years. 

I also have a particular interest in nutrition, diet and gut health and the impact of this on mental health and wellbeing. 

If you have any questions please do give me a call.
