My early work experience was charity based working with survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. Latterly my therapy work has become more varied working with a wide range of clients with various presenting issues. I work with adults of all ages, orientations and backgrounds who enter therapy with a wide variety of challenges and experiences.

I feel passionately that talking therapy should be available and accessible to all. I also believe that a counselling intervention can be hard work and it certainly doesn’t offer a quick fix or a cure all. It does however offer an opportunity for exploration, understanding, growth and change.

My divorce and separation work was based on personal experience. A breakup of a relationship can be alienating and debilitating. Life will change but that change doesn’t have to be negative.

I have undertaken specialist divorce training therapy and have a licence issued through the training organisation. I work alongside divorce specialists in East Anglia and Yorkshire. My work is delivered privately in one to one, face to face sessions.
