I'm an experienced Counsellor and Life Coach working with adults, families, children, young people and teenagers. I have experience in the private and voluntary sector.

As counsellor and life coach, my training and experiences enable me to draw from a wide range of therapeutic methods, psychodynamic, cognitive, DBT and systemic.

I offer a safe integrative therapeutic intervention intervention that would be matched to your specific needs, each person is different and your styles of communicating individual. Your therapeutic support should be as individual as you are, or your child is, to meet those individual needs. My training and experience enable me to draw from a wide range of therapeutic methods, each of these have a different theory underpinning it, allowing problems and issues to be managed in different ways.

Counselling & Life Coaching can make a real difference to people's lives regardless of age. I want to give adults and young people a positive experience of therapeutic intervention, that provides them lifelong skills, building self worth, self esteem, and confidence for the future. 

I have worked in counselling for twenty years, and worked for Relate for twelve years, working with children, teenagers and young people at CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) as well as working with children at local schools with various issues.
