I am a qualified counsellor and therapist, working with individuals, couples and family members to find the best outcomes available.
My training was in Transactional Analysis Counselling an observable model of personality that explores and bring awareness of interactions between people and within the individual.
This enables choice, decisions and positive change to be made. Its an exciting tool that I use in my own life every day.
I chose the practice name New Direction Solutions as it typifies how it is sometimes it necessary to learn to do, think or feel in a different way so as to resolve those issues that we encounter in life.
For many years I have professionally worked in fast paced demanding companies in the area of IT Service Management directly working with teams in different countries and from different cultures.
This gives me the first hand experience of working in an organisational capacity with the challenges this entails.
I have studied the martial art of Goju Karate directly from my teacher in Japan for over twenty five years. As the UK representative of the school I now teach other teachers.
This gives me the experience of coaching others to realise their potential.
This combination of counselling, work place experience and the discipline of martial arts provides me with my base to work with others.
Change isn’t always easy and healing takes time. I will always do my best for you so as to bring about positive change and find solutions that improve your well being.
