Clients and trainers have said that I have a warm disposition and work hard to help people understand and be in control of their therapy. Our first meeting is vital in finding out if we can usefully work together. It is a time when we talk about what has led you to seek help, the nature of specific and general difficulties you face and crucially how you think therapy might help you.

I have worked as a Dramatherapist since 1993, as a Supervisor since 2003 and as a Counsellor since 2008.

When words are not enough your therapy can include art materials, objects, movement, play, story and voice work as these are all powerful ways of finding a way through difficult feelings and emotions

If we decide to work for an extended period of time I tend to work in blocks of sessions so that we can review and reflect on what's working and not working for you.
