Psychology

"May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within." 
John O'Donohue

 

I am a senior psychologist experienced at treating a wide range of difficulties including more complex presentations.

With over 20 years’ experience working in both public and private mental health settings I am available for work with adults.

I have strong focus on strengths, values and preferred stories of life and identity to promote recovery, healing and growth.

 

A pragmatic approach ensures that skills and insights from therapy are taken into the client’s everyday life.

I provide a nurturing, creative space which offers warmth, humour and safety.
