I am confident helping clients with complex medical and emotional needs.

Non-judgemental, warm, friendly and down to earth, I will approach you as a unique individual recognising that you are the expert on you..

My approach is entirely client-focused. All one to one sessions are uniquely tailored to your particular individual needs.
