I am an experienced and qualified counsellor and assessor. Presently I work as a counsellor in private practice, and I work in the mental health field in education.

I am passionate about helping individuals in distress while respecting their difference. And see both counselling and education as empowering people to live more authentic, richer, & more meaningful lives, by bringing a deeper psychological understanding to our experiences and relationships.

Before training as a counsellor I had careers in industry and in the health & social care sector.

When not counselling, or involved with my other work, I like to divide my time between family & friends, spending time in the out-doors, and on my music interests.
