Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked for over twenty-six years’ in secondary education.
My own experience of an eating disorder led me to support others in this area, where I facilitated an eating disorder support group for two periods of six years. Following my desire to become more effective in helping others, I decided to train as a counsellor.
I have a passion for building healthy families and love spending time with my own ever-growing family. I trained as an integrative counsellor, drawing from person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and solution-focused approaches to meet the needs and goals of the client.
In couples therapy, I draw from the work of Harville Hendrix, John Gottman and the Emotional Focused Therapy of Sue Johnson. Additionally, I can offer a Christian perspective to those who may find it helpful.
