As a highly qualified therapist with a wealth of experience, I help clients to achieve positive change by developing self-knowledge and processing emotions, giving them a toolkit to deal with issues in the future.
I combine evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques with a person-centred approach, and this, coupled with a deep understanding of how people learn, leads to a creative and adaptive style of working, enabling the client to obtain positive results.
I have been practising mindfulness and meditation for over twenty years, and this has played an important role in my own wellbeing. I have first-hand experience of many issues which has given me deep compassion for human suffering. I now view my own experiences as a gift and seeing others create change in their own lives is a privilege.
I am motivated in my own professional development and my work is also my passion which is often evident in the results I achieve with clients.
I have worked with trauma, grief, sexual abuse, anxiety disorders, phobias, depression, stress, unhappiness, relationship issues, eating disorders and weight issues. I do one to one and groups.

I aim to assist clients become aware of their thoughts, emotions, physical symptoms and behaviours and how they are interconnected. The sessions bring mindful awareness of the self and the influences of environment. My clients are safe to process emotions and deal with negative thought patterns and find new behaviours to increase physical health as well as mental and emotional health. The outcome is for greater peace and overall wellbeing which is sustainable.
