About me

I help you make positive changes in your life by looking at your present situation, your relationships, and how your past may be influencing the present. We will look at establishing goals for you and examine different options with new perspectives, all in a supportive environment.

I have been in practice for 31 years. I am co-author of the popular self help book 'I Just Want To Be Happy - The Insiders' Guide To Positive Transformation'. I appear on t.v. programmes, most recently being interviewed by Anglia TV on the topic 'Can Money Make You Happy?'. For four years I was a policy advisor to the 41,000-member British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, playing a key role in shaping the direction of counselling in Britain. A frequent contributor to professional journals, I am a former senior lecturer in counselling.

I work with both individuals and couples at my practice in Aylsham, Norfolk.
