For the past two decades, I have worked with children and adults in education whilst balancing professional and semi-professional work in football and rugby teams: as a player, coach, therapist and counsellor. 

Throughout my career, I have supported children and adults through challenging times. As a counsellor, I can help when facing emotional distress and uncertainty.  Emotional therapy allows you the space and time to explore your feelings. Together, we can safely and gently start your healing process.

In addition to my counselling credentials, I am a sports physical therapist which enables me to capitalise on the link between the mind and the body, especially when recovering from an injury. I offer a holistic therapeutic treatment which will help you reset and heal.
