About me

The demands of everyday life can sometimes overwhelm us, leaving us feeling lost and out of control. Feeling out of control can lead to anxiety and depression which will impact on the way we interact with ourselves and those around us.  It might be events from our past that are coming to the surface and affecting the present. present, or current difficulties that are keeping us stuck and unable to reach our full potential. 

I aim to offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space where you can begin to untangle and explore any emotional obstacles that may be keeping you from fully enjoying life. I offer both short and long-term therapy to adults, young people and couples.

I work in an integrative way, which means that I may draw upon various approaches to help clients, depending on individual needs.  Collaboratively we can explore ways to break any harmful thinking and behaviour patterns that might be having a negative effect on your life.  

My particular interests are the difficulties arising from loss and trauma, which includes anxiety related disorders of depression and OCD. I have extensive experience working with bereavement and loss related issues, I have worked with patients and families within a hospice environment.  I am an Eating disorder practitioner. Eating disorders often evolve from anxiety related experiences. My work aims to help clients rebuild a healthy relationship with food by rebuilding their relationship with themselves.
