My Experience

I am a dedicated psychotherapist with over 20 years experience in working with mental health in a variety of settings; including private practice, community based organisations and the NHS. I specialise in therapy for addictive behaviours, anxiety disorders, developmental trauma, PTSD, insomnia and neurodiversity.

My Commitment to You

I am committed to helping my clients cultivate resilience and reclaim control over their lives. Through evidence-based therapeutic approaches and personalised treatment plans, I aim to create a safe and nurturing environment where clients can explore their experiences, develop coping strategies, and embark on a journey toward holistic well-being. My passion lies in empowering individuals to embrace their uniqueness, overcome obstacles, and thrive in their personal and emotional growth. Ultimately I would like to show you how to develop a sustainable approach to good mental health.
