About Me

Since 2008 I have worked in many different settings addressing a wide variety of needs. My experience ranges from working in a school environment, offering one-to-one and group support to students, to working as part of a GP’s practice team providing counselling to patients. I am currently involved in a project that offers counselling to clients that have experienced sexual abuse/violence. In my private practice I offer one-to-one counselling to people who have reached a point in their lives where they recognise a need to reach out for some support.

Here are some of the issues that may bring you into counselling:
