I have been running my own practice since 2008. I have experience of working with a variety of individuals from diverse backgrounds, seeking help for a great range of issues and problems. In particular I have worked with those with brain injuries, their families and those who are experiencing difficulties associated with having a visible difference.

I offer a range of different support services including stress and anger management, life coaching and individual CBT or person-centred therapy either face to face or through remote telephone or skype/instant messenger.

I also offer tutoring support to students undergoing A-level or degree level psychology and counselling. You can also find me through my listing on counselling pages.
