Life can be hard; at these times it can be difficult to ask for help and see beyond our immediate unhappiness. Taking the initial step of seeing a therapist can be daunting but most people experience a sense of relief when they share what is troubling them.

I am a teacher with over 20 years’ experience and a qualified Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. I have worked therapeutically within educational settings and the charity sector with young people (aged 3 to 18) and adults offering one to one therapy sessions.
