About Me

portraitOriginally I trained and worked in Social Work before transferring to qualify as a counsellor and have been practising for over 20 years. Since then I have worked with individuals and couples as well as facilitating groups. This has included a variety of settings such as private practice, primary care, drug and alcohol rehab units, prisons, for the past 10 years I have been working with Service Personnel and their families. While mostly I see people face to face I also offer phone or Skype counselling.
