“Beneath every behaviour, there is a feeling. Beneath every feeling, there is a need. And when we meet that need rather than focus on the behaviour, we begin to deal with the cause, not the symptom”.

I work within a Person-centred framework, with a mix of Narrative and Family Systems approaches.

I love working with young people, emerging adults and relationships.
I also offer supervision for those working in community services sector dealing with the balance between client work and funding bodies.
