I’m warmhearted and an open person, I am honest, with a sense of humour to match, and a passion for people achieving happiness.
My life experience
I am a mum to 6 grown children, 2 are from our blended family.
I have had my own experience with anxieties, loss and feeling sad and lonely. I have been married and divorced. I understand hurt and sadness loss and anger, I’ve had my fair share over the years. But I’ve also had happiness.
I am warm and compassionate and understand and can empathize with emotions and feelings that leave us feeling lost and alone.
My personal journey took me to therapy I know for sure it changed my life, this lead me to study the subject and work in the field, because I know it works.

Some Issues I work with
These are just some of the issues clients come to see me about, all of which we can work to together to unravel and understand.
My work with clients has proven to be effective because I challenge, because we will do the hard work together, you will be fully supported.
My approach is warm and open. I have not only empathy but also the experience of how ourstuggles can affect every aspect of our lives. Our sleep, our appetite, how we respond to others. Our moods, we can feel anxious, lonely, depressed, and sad.
