Helping clients to get back in charge of their lives, with the confidence, calmness & self-sufficiency to flourish.

I realise all the different names, labels and types of therapy can seem confusing to anyone who isn't a trained therapist!

So I've created several pages of information that I hope you'll find useful if you want to understand what some of these things are, and how they might be helpful to you.
Of course, you don't really need to know all about the different modalities of therapy (that's my job), but it's perfectly natural to be curious so I hope you'll find these pages useful. And if not, please let me know how they might be changed to make them more helpful.

The links in the navigation panel will provide more information for each of the following subjects:
