Experience

I have worked with clients from a range of ages, sexualities, backgrounds and cultures and feel privileged to have been part of each of their journeys to personal growth.

I have worked with young people (13 -21 years) on a range of problems that are specific to their age range, within a young person’s support agency.  Currently I am working for a local charity who support and help, via counselling and psychotherapy, adults who are survivors of childhood abuse.
