About Me

I am passionate about nurturing mental health. I strive to deliver quality therapy and seek feedback, opportunities and learning in order to continue to grow and evolve. 

Alongside the therapeutic work I deliver I enjoy the gentle rhythm of life in Somerset, being creative, keeping active and exploring the surrounding nature and countryside with my two Whippets.
