Welcome to my website, I hope it reflects the compassion and strength of feeling I have for the work I do.  I've been working for over 20 years as a counsellor and psychotherapist and bring all of that experience into my current practice.  For me, being alongside clients as they recover and refocus is a privilege and one of my most fulfilling and rewarding life experiences.
