Whether you are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship issues, or simply seeking personal growth, you will find a safe non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours as I support you through your journey.

I have supported many clients through some of life’s toughest challenges, with solution-focused therapy and an integrative approach which incorporates multiple therapeutic methods. Together we explore your present (person-centred), past (psychodynamic), thoughts and behaviours (CBT) to work through your issues, to enable you to feel better about life, to gain a deeper understanding and to move forward to a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
