About Me

I work in a Pluralistic and Integrative way, exploring your issues and finding ways by working together for you to live a more fulfilled life. 

I can work face to face, online, at the telephone and I also offer Walk and Talk therapy with clients who may benefit from working using the outdoor environment for sessions. 

I adapt my practice depending upon my clients needs which are varied. Everyone is unique and you will find in me someone who does not judge you. We will find ways of working together to help you understand your feelings and issues, finding ways to live your life in ways which you can accept, make changes which you feel need to be made and find a balance to the challenges you may face.
