VIDEO ONLINE technology is currently available during this difficult time.
Exploration of difficult issues can be frightening so together we can explore them in a non judgemental way and facilitate change by encouragement and self awareness. I can assist individuals in making sense of confusing or overwhelming emotions, help them to develop resources to cope, gain a deeper understanding of self and how they may relate to others.

I also specialise in working with Young People from the age of 11 years with a view to building self esteem, development of abilities to cope with anxieties, bullying and peer pressure. I have a wealth of experience dealing with Young People who may be having suicidal thoughts, or may be undertaking some sort of self harm. I have experience with running anger management workshops and can work with anger issues on a one to one basis too.
