If I’ve not covered something here that you are seeking to address, please do ask if it is an issue I work with.

If I do not have the skills or experience to work with an issue, I shall be transparent about that and if I know and would recommend someone who is appropriately skilled in that area, I shall provide you with their contact details.

Please note that I only work with people over the age of 18. I know a number of skilled child and adolescent psychotherapists and family therapists so please feel free to email, text or call if you’d like me to recommend someone who works with individuals under the age of 18.

My belief is that all people are doing the best they  can with the resources they have, and that via counselling, life coaching  and therapy individuals can realise resources within themselves that  they have so far undervalued or overlooked.
