Going to speak with a therapist takes a lot of courage and can be an important first step towards exploring meaningful and complex issues in life.

I would like to welcome you into a space where there will be no judgement, from me, around what has brought you into therapy.

This may mean making changes in your life, or just learning to become comfortable with yourself. I work to create an atmosphere of trust between myself and my clients, supporting the individuals I work with to move forward in their lives.
I work with a broad range of people, and offer Brief Therapy, Full Therapy, as well as on-line therapy. I’m non-judgmental, empathic and sincere. I’m also happy to offer a complimentary first meeting.
