About me

As a counsellor, hypnotherapist and psychotherapist with over 25 years' experience I can help with a wide range of issues such as anxiety (panic, phobias etc.), depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement, the impact of health challenges etc. My approach is compassionate, holistic and pragmatic. I also have extensive experience offering EMDR therapy for the symptoms of PTSD, due to the emotional impact of accidents, traumatic loss, violence, combat trauma etc.

As an integrative psychotherapist, I have worked with a wide range of conditions using various approaches. My background is international, and my experience includes the NHS, university counselling services, and private practice. In private practice I have worked with referrals from employee assistance programs, rehab services, and private healthcare providers

My approach to private practice is flexible.  Whether you are looking for a few sessions in order to work through a particular issue, or seeking longer term regular appointments, we could discuss your therapy goals in order to decide upon the most appropriate way forward. If you live further afield, after an initial in-person consultation, depending upon your therapy needs, Skype sessions might be an option.

If I could be of help, please let me know.
