About me

My desire to help people started along time ago.  I was aware of so much distress in people and wanted to understand why and how to help them.  This desire has taken me on quite a journey and resulted in the completion of counselling courses, a degree in Psychology, 4 year clinical psychotherapy training and drug and alcohol counselling training.   During this time I have volunteered as a drug and alcohol counsellor, a school counsellor and worked in the NHS with clients with with anxiety, depression and substance misuse.  In my private practice I work with clients with with anxiety, depression, bereavement, self-esteem issues,  relationship problems, trauma, and religious abuse.    I am especially interested in the latest neuroscience research and art therapy, both of which inform and shape my work with clients.
