Professional Qualifications & Experience
During the last 25 years I have helped many people who have suffered emotional and physical distress.
Very often these experiences are hurtful and hard to to talk about due to their painful nature.
I do understand and admire the courage it requires to seek help and the healing of these memories.
My experience has taught me that with sensitive, patient and careful therapy significant healing and recovery can occur.
Where hurt and distress has been caused in unsafe relationships, healing can be found in a safe, trustworthy, therapeutic environment which is what I aim to provide.
