Life sometimes seems to serve wave  after wave of challenge. No matter how hard you try to be strong and to cope things don’t seem to get better. That’s when you need a helping hand, but it’s hard to know where to turn. I can walk the tough times with you and support you to ride those waves in new ways.

Helping people to be healthy and happier matters to me. I aim to assist you to better understand yourself and your world so you can make decisions that open up possibilities and place you in charge of your life.

Using Emotion-Focused techniques, practical strategies, psycho-education, and mindfulness CBT I am able to assist you to put in place solutions that help to relieve your struggles and enable you to live the life you hoped for – and deserve.

I have worked for 30 years with many different people from varied backgrounds, struggling with a range of human challenges – grief, relationship and family problems, mental health problems, trauma, loneliness, and loss of life direction.

I am committed to providing a genuine, respectful, and warm relationship for those people who work with me.
