Thank you for clicking on my profile, I want to start by reassuring you that I am here to help and support you. 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 to.
I am 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.
Weekly Therapy Group
I plan to start a weekly therapy group in Norwich from October 2017. Group members will develop an atmosphere of support from seeing familiar faces each week. Being a closed group, I expect to interview you by phone before we decide that the group will suit you.
'Saturday Psychodrama' Group Workshops
Group workshops suit people who want to work for a day in depth and who want the benefits that come from working and speaking as part of a group. These days are titled 'Saturday Psychodrama'. If you are new to psychodrama, I welcome a call or email to assure you that there is no need to act.
Individual Sessions by Skype
These are available for people who afraid of meeting in groups
The weekly therapy group will meet for one and a half hours weekly in the evening after work.
Individual sessions are 55 minutes and they are a weekly commitment.
Cancellation: please tell me a week in advance if you wish to cancel/amend an appointment
I offer one-day group workshops in Norwich which people may attend regularly if they like them.
Training, qualifications & experience

I held an honorary contract for 3 years at a London hospital psychotherapy department (Mile End) where I ran a weekly group for out-patients with a variety of mental problems.
