I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked with teenagers, single adults, couples and parents for almost thirty years. I have travelled far and appreciated many cultures and many faiths.

My medical background is in cardiac physiology so I understand the challenge illness can have on our mental health. Whilst working in the medical field I have always had a passion to pursue studies in Psychotherapy. I pursued further studies and completed Dip in Counselling.

My clients and friends often ask where I get my energy from. For me, to be concerned and caring about someone else's welfare, I have to first be kind to myself. I must be considerate to my own mental health and do my best to remove all bias. This allows me to care without judgement and open the door for my clients to find solutions to their life’s dilemmas.

Whatever background a person is from, they experience an immediate warmth and honesty from me. They feel comfortable and loved to immediately be open with what’s on their mind. My clients go away inspired to look at life from a better perspective, inspired to change, inspired that their life can be positively different.
