Before setting up my therapy practice, I worked for a counselling agency in Hereford and for Cruse (a national bereavement charity). I have worked with clients for a number of years with issues including abuse, anxiety, depression, loss, low self-confidence, relationships, stress and trauma.
As well as completing training over four years and working professionally with clients, I have personal experience of close bereavement and adverse life experiences. I understand that life can be tough sometimes and it's important to have strong support when you're experiencing change. I believe that psychological therapies and making steps to improve your mental health can make a big difference to your life now and in the future.
