I am accredited through my governing body BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) since 2009. I have a varied working history having worked in NHS settings, charities and the voluntary sector.

The person centred approach means I work with you to get the best for you from our sessions.  E.M.D.R (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is a way of working which is very effective with clients who have suffered a trauma.
