About me

I am an experienced and qualified Psychotherapist with dual qualifications in both Adult Psychological therapy and Children, Young People and Family Counselling.

I came to the world of Therapy later in life, starting my Psychotherapeutic journey 20 years ago. I now believe that my life experiences before Psychotherapy & Counselling have served in helping me to become a more genuine and empathic Therapist.

An area of particular interest to me is the Psychology of attachment, early trauma and the role of loss and how these may continue to impact upon the present.

We cannot change the past, but pain can be made easier to bear with a process of listening and understanding ourselves…

“There are times in life when people must know when not to let go. Balloons are designed to teach small children this” Tery Pratchett
