I have over twenty-five years working within the NHS and it was during those years that I followed my desire in wanting to help others. Such was my passion that I committted to studying for my BSc (Hons) Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy. With a wealth of experience both personally and professionally, I bring with me my personal warmth and charismatic nature offering every client a safe and private space where together we can explore any difficulties or issues they may have.
