My approach is based on the integrative training I have undertaken. I am a registered member of the BACP and accredited member of NCPS. I hold a full DBS certificate, and Westminster Insurance Policy.

I have a genuine curiosity when encountering people; some part of you has prompted some questions about inner happiness. I look forward to facilitating these parts and discovering what it feels like to live in your own unique way.

I hope to raise awareness of how mental health is often misunderstood and guide you to gain valuable insights relating to your beliefs and patterns of behaviour. I am aware that coming to therapy is a brave step. Having been in my own personal development for over 30 years it was one of the most profound decisions I made, which I wholeheartedly advocate.
