A BIT ABOUT ME...

I am 50 and have lived in North Devon for the last 10 years with my family and pets.

I have first hand experience of the huge benefits of therapy and I enjoy exploring how emotions can affect us with my clients. 

I grew up in Northumberland and have always loved animals and the outdoors. I like to incorporate  these elements into my work, offering walk and talk therapy as well animal assisted therapy for clients who request it.
