About me

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist accredited with the BACP and UKCP and a visiting trainer of counselling and psychotherapy at a number of training institutes. I provide individual and group supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists and I am a member of the British Association of Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytical Supervisors (BAPPS). I also oversee and supervise a lower cost counselling and psychotherapy service. Clients wishing to make use of this can arrange an assessment session with me and then I will match you to a suitable practitioner.

When clients first come, I focus primarily on understanding what is causing difficulty and seeing if I might be somebody who the client can communicate with and relate to. This is important in building trust between us. In terms of my experience, I work with many conditions, including depression, anxiety, loss, relationship difficulties, trauma and identity such as cultural, racial and sexual identities. In my approach, I draw on transactional analysis and psychoanalytical ideas using them relationally.

Further information

I have also worked as an organisational development consultant for fifteen years, prior to that I was a customer and management trainer for an airline and a secondary school teacher.
