About me:

My background includes over twelve years of counselling experience, including working in a community drug and alcohol team and also in a mental health inpatient unit. I help adults and adolescents with a broad range of issues and clinical disorders, including trauma, bipolar disorder, drug and alcohol abuse, and men’s issues. I also enjoy working with couples.

How I will help you:

Underlying my treatment approach and our work together is a foundation of client-centred support, in tandem with motivational challenge and goal-setting. I aim to provide a nurturing space where you can feel safe to explore emotional challenges, as well as examining where you can build on your successes.

My three favourite things:

  1. Cycling
  2. Playing music with friends (trumpet and mandolin)
  3. Yoga.
