I have worked as a counsellor for 25 years in mental health, addiction and University settings. I specialise in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress and anxiety.

I am professional, warm and confidential. My non-judgmental approach will assist you to work through any barriers that are hindering you from living and reaching your full potential. I am skilled with brief solution focus work.

My background training is in a range of therapies, including cognitive behavioural, solution focused, acceptance and commitment and existential therapies. Because of my working background with addictions, I also utilise motivational interviewing.

My foundation training is in person centred therapy. Generally, this means that I encourage and support you to find the solutions that are genuine and specific to you, using the therapies that are most suitable to you.
