Psychotherapist, Psychologist

I offer an empathetic, client-centred approach to counselling and therapy in a trusting, safe and supporting environment. In honouring and exploring the knowledge of your life it will provide the opportunity for you to build on this knowledge. My style draws from a range of approaches and techniques mainly from EMDR Therapy, Hakomi and Narrative therapy, which are called upon depending on the nature of the presenting issue as well as the personality and needs of the client.
