My qualifications and practice

I can work with a number of issues including, but not limited to:

  • low mood and depression
  • suicidal thoughts
  • anxiety
  • domestic violence
  • historic sexual abuse, sexual exploitation or rape
  • self harm
  • low self-confidence
  • low self-esteem
  • trauma
  • family or relationship issues

In my mind, there are no taboo topics. Whatever you bring to our sessions, you will be met with empathy, genuineness, respect, and absolutely no judgement.  Our work will be subject to a confidentiality agreement.
