I specialise in working with children, teenagers, families and couples counselling. This includes parenting skills, parenting through separation, relationship and communication issues and couples counselling. I also work extensively with anxiety, trauma, loss and grief. My training is in Person Centered counselling. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioural, Narrative, Strength Based and Emotionally Focussed therapies, as well as Creative and Play therapies. I have over twenty-five years experience of working with children and families. My background is in teaching ranging from early childhood through to the intermediate years, including twelve years working with students with specific learning needs. Prior to working in private practice, I was a Child and Family Counsellor at Presbyterian Support for five years.
