What I do: I specialise in working with

• Trauma, depression and personality issues
• Couples, relational issues and eating disorders.
• Loss, bereavement.

My approach: Person-centred - working with client needs. It can involve differing counselling approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT.)

How it works: I work with what clients present in a confidential, safe, friendly, non-judgemental and supportive way.

How it may help: As clients engage with the therapy, they’re helped to achieve their goals towards wellness.

A bit about me: I’ve worked in the NHS as a dietitian and also teaching in primary and secondary schools. I’m a qualified trainer/assessor and clinical supervisor who is able to offer a mediation service. I enjoy cooking and was a chef and restaurateur for a short time. I enjoy music, theatre and the opera.
