If you suffer from anxiety, depression, fatigue, low self esteem, insomnia or burn out, I am here to support you on your journey to improved mental health.  I will gently guide you and listen carefully to your concerns. Collaboratively, we will decide on what therapy resonates with you and an appropriate plan will be developed to suit your individual needs. I will provide a safe, empathetic and understanding environment where you will thrive.
