About Me  


I have been a qualified, practising client-centred psychotherapist / counsellor and case work supervisor for nearly 20 years, working in a variety of settings with a  large diversity of people and their unique life challenges .

I am  continually humbled to  work alongside  people, facilitating and supporting their self reflection, self-awareness,  growth and their  desire  and courage to change their lives for the better.

I wholly trust in the potential we all have to thrive  and I am driven by a passion to destigmatise  counselling  to a  'wellbeing', accessible ,equitable activity  for  every member of our society . So much so that  together with a trusted colleague , I  have also set up, developed and managed  three free  counselling services  in the community,  during my career to date.
