Welcome! I'm deeply passionate about psychology and psychotherapy, dedicating my career to understanding the mind and fostering emotional well-being. Beyond my work with clients, I'm constantly exploring the latest in psychology through both reading and writing, always eager to share insights and discoveries.

My approach is tailored to fit each individual's unique needs. I blend a variety of counselling techniques and psychological theory, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Mindfulness,ensuring my methods are grounded in solid research and proven effectiveness. While I'm equipped to support individuals facing a wide range of challenges, I have a special focus on couples counseling, and helping those dealing with anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Before stepping into the world of counseling psychology, I spent 18 years supporting children and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism, alongside their families, across schools, homes, and care environments. This extensive experience has enriched my understanding and empathy, guiding my practice today.

I'm also an experienced speaker and trainer, with several publications on public speaking and personal development to my name. My work aims to inspire and equip others with the tools for personal growth and effective communication.
