I can help you with a range of issues, help make sense of your world and implement positive change.

I work integratively - an approach using many different theories that best suit you as an individual. The characteristics of a talking therapy is that it immediately reduces the anxiety that you may be feeling. I offer a safe place for you to come and share and explore. It's a journey to be relished as you become a better you.
