About me

Thank you for clicking on my profile, I want to start my reassuring you that I am here to help and support you through this difficult time. Whatever emotions, thoughts and feelings you are struggling to understand or deal with I will give you space and time to talk and be genuinely listened too.

I am very passionate about the work I do, I have a lot of experience of helping my clients to overcome their issues in both one to one sessions and also in group work.

One to One Sessions
This is where we can sit together, just you and I. You can talk to me without judgment in a safe, confidential and comfortable space. We work at your pace, and I will able to help you to start to understand what is happening, and teach you the tools to move forward. I have one to one sessions available on week days.

Group Sessions
Group sessions suit people who want to work with me for a day in depth (rather than weekly) and who feel more comfortable working / speaking in part of a group rather than on a one to one basis. In the group sessions I use an approach called Psychodrama. This means we use dramatisation and role play to explore issues and gain insight into your life.

I provide presentations of my psychotherapy work to a public audience with my colleagues; these are taster sessions for people who want to see how a therapy group works. These are held in London, for more details please contact me.

Arrangements
I offer sessions of 55 minutes.

The entry phone of my London premises come straight through to me, so you don't need to explain your session to anyone else.  My practice is also very conveniently located with bus stops right outside (4, 19, 30, 43) and just a 5 minute walk from Highbury & Islington Tube Stations and a 10 minute walk from Angel.

The front door of my Norwich premises leads straight through to reception where someone will show you to my room or, if early, show you where to wait.
