About me

I have worked for over twenty years specialising in issues related to substance misuse and alcohol dependency problems. I am a trauma specialist covering many aspects including PTSD related issues. My work with both men and women can focus in early childhood difficulties or more recent traumatic experiences involving emotional physical or sexual violence. Again I am familiar with many of the emotional struggles which at times we may face in our lives. This can often involve problems on how we relate to ourselves or others. Difficulties around disability identity or cultural struggles are often part of my work.
More recently I have trained in couple counselling. Here my aim is to help couples gain insight into difficulties they may be facing in their relationship consider options available to move on with their lives. Gain the ability to make choices in their lives while respecting each other needs. Creative active listening is encouraged here forming part of the work involved.
