Listening, supporting and respecting your individuality, and capitalising on your strengths, talents and coping resources. I work with Children (aged 10+), Teenagers, Adults of all ages and Couples. If you do not see your area of concern listed, please check with me as the following is not an exhaustive list. I also provide an on line service, however, please check with me as there will be certain presenting issues, such as Suicide Ideation, I will not be able to support on line for any client age group. Please note that I do not work with the following presenting issues (OCD, Sexual Abuse, Addiction and Eating Disorders) because I am very focused on ethical, safe and competent practice and do not have the specialist knowledge or experience which I believe are required in these areas.
