“I work as a counsellor and psychotherapist, helping adolescents and adults access their inner strengths and find their own unique ways of coping with life’s difficulties according to their age and stage of development. I use accessible and creative ways of working. In working with the person from a holistic perspective my aim is to help them access resources from within themselves. When possible I seek to assist them to avail of external supports from their families and the wider community when present. I find working with adolescents to be particularly rewarding’’
