About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist, offering short and long term therapy to individuals, couples, and families. My training (in various models / methods) enables me to provide a safe containing space in which we can, together, explore and work towards sustainable change.

‘The difference that makes the difference…’

Family and Systemic psychotherapist

Family & Systemic Therapy provides effective help for people with an extraordinarily wide range of difficulties. The range covers childhood conditions such as conduct and mood disorders, eating disorders, and drug misuse; and in adults, couple difficulties and severe psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia. Throughout the life span, it is shown to be effective in treatment and management of depression and chronic physical illness, and the problems that can arise as families change their constitution or their way of life.


Humanistic Integrative

Humanistic counselling (such as Person-centered) is a holistic approach that believes in the ability of people to reach their own potential. It facilitates growth of personal awareness through the clients experience within the counselling relationship. The integrative approach sees every individual as unique, therefore drawing from other approaches (such as Psychodynamic), enabling me to adjust to the needs of the client. The private practice has risen out of wealth of experience, I have gained over the years, enabling me to provide you with an individual therapeutic experience, opening doors to change and understanding.
My training also included Short Term Counseling, Psychiatry, Psychopathology and Psychodynamics, CBT.

Coming to see someone, to talk about highly personal issues and feelings, is not usually easy. However, talking to a trained professional is a good way to begin to ease the anxiety you are experiencing. Having the time and space, just for you to think about you, exploring what is hindering your well being.
