I strive to help people reach their potential – through careful assessment, tailored therapy, problem-solving, coaching and team-working.  I work closely with you to choose goals that are meaningful.  Whilst other agencies may be limited to working in schools I am free to work closely with parents/ carers/ other agencies as I believe this is key to success and wellbeing.
