About me

I run a flexible psychotherapy practice offering mainly telephone counselling but I also see individuals and couples face to face and over Skype when required.

My approach is eclectic or integrative and includes Integrative Arts Psychotherapy, Gestalt, Person-Centred, TA and is also informed by Psychodynamic and Attachment theories - my work is tailored to each individual persons needs.

Additionally, I specialise in helping people assert themselves by finding their voice to overcome low confidence, depression, stress and bullying. In this way and by processing the deeper issues, I help client's to better understand and work through relationship problems (both at work and at home), anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement and health issues. 

The relationship between therapist and client is, in my opinion, the key to successful therapy - by providing the opportunity for open discourse with a client prior to embarking on therapy (usually over the telephone), I am able to assess what is required and if necessary refer them on to other suitably qualified therapists.

In addition to my private work, I have worked for various organisations over the years including Bupa's EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) and the Priory where I worked for their IAPT service in a GP practice.  I also worked independently from the Priory for the NHS, in another GP practice.

Further information

I see myself as open and non judgemental and feel priviledged to do the work that I do. 

Like a puzzle, I find that counselling sessions enable people to find and work through pieces (of the puzzle) that were previously lost or hidden so that by the end of therapy the picture is more complete and the image recognisable ... that is the metaphor but what it means, is that clients work towards and find a place of greater self awareness by the end of therapy.

My overarching belief, is that my job is to enable people to recognise and move from 'false self'' to 'real self' allowing them to find their voices in the world.
