I have had 20 years counselling experience.

I have a passion for seeing people move from “stuck to un-stuck” in the physical, emotional, financial and spiritual areas of their life. I recognise the value of establishing daily activities to accomplish medium and long-term goals as a means of motivating clients to live fulfilling and purposeful lives. I enjoy seeing clients achieve success and helping them define what that means for them.

I use a strengths-based approach in my work and I have a special interest in ACT and mindfulness. I find that by addressing “thinking traps” clients are able to move toward being the best version of themselves. I am a father and grandfather. I’ve been a keen sportsman. I recognize the importance of good sleep, diet and exercise as providing a sound foundation to good emotional health. I am currently working as a counsellor in private practice and have done for 12 years.
