Personal Statement

Perhaps you are struggling with relationships, or an area of your life which isn’t working, or perhaps you are finding your feelings or behaviour difficult to understand and this is making you unhappy or stressed.

I am a warm and empathetic therapist with a passion for helping my clients on their journey towards growth and change. 

Our work will be exploratory and collaborative. I won't offer solutions but, instead, will help create a supportive place in which we can reflect together on understanding past confusion and hurt. How long we work together we will discuss and will be led by you.
