I am a Youth Mental Health First Aider, a Suicide intervention practitioner, and family violence coordinator.

I am passionate about supporting clients that are Neurodivergent. I advocate, counsel and support individuals with ASD, ADHD and ODD. This includes educating teachers, parents and children about ASD/ADHD.

I also counsel for general mental health conditions such as anxiety, OCD and depression. I also developed and facilitated a UK regulatory body accredited diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, increasing the skills of trainee therapists.

Modalities I use include Person-Centered Counselling, Sand tray therapy, CBT, Creative therapy, and Psychotherapy.
