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.
