It is a real privilege to be able support people therapeutically at a time when many feel at their most vulnerable, and I never take that for granted. As such, I work hard to establish a supportive therapeutic alliance between myself and my clients. Working with both children and adults, I prioritise regular training and the development of my practice in order to offer evidence-based approaches and individualised models of therapy. People are so much more than the problems that they face, and I work to ensure that the people who I work with know that, and get the opportunity to rediscover it for themselves.
