About me

Do you feel lost and as if you are the only person struggling in life? Does the weight of your worries sometimes seem too much and you do not know where to turn.

Then let me help you, I too have felt lost and overwhelmed by life which started me on my personal and professional journey to seek a better way of living.

Today, I am an HCPC reg Counselling Psychologist and an accredited BACP and COSRT psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I have worked for 35 years in the NHS with individuals, couples and families in a variety of clinical and counselling roles. At present I am the Clinical Director of Local Counselling Centre which offers counselling across the home counties.

I work with all types of psychological problems, but specialise in couples, relationship work and psychosexual therapy. I offer clients a safe, non-judgemental environment from which to explore their issues and understand the difficulties they are having.

My main models are person centred, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and integrative. I also use coaching and life skills training where appropriate. I aim to take a holistic approach to my clients needs and will refer to other practitioners where appropriate.

I generally see clients for between 4-20 sessions depending on the issues, although I do undertake long term work as well.

Low cost service for individuals and couples available

I am a Clinical Director of LCC, Local Counselling Centre. As well as a comprehensive full cost service, we are able to offer a low cost service for qualifying individuals and couples from just £15.00 per session after an assessment session.
