I am a holistic, integrative practitioner, which means I draw from many different therapeutic styles and theories.

*Everyone is a little nervous when performing, that's natural, we want to do well.
But, actors, presenters, musicians and DJs whose work is suffering from excessive nervousness or stagefright could benefit from processing deeper emotional issues.
I am also a part time working musician and have forty years' performance experience, as a therapist this gives me unique insight into stage performance anxiety and issues.

Photos & videos
£50, £60 couples. I am unable to offer free introductory sessions but am happy to discuss your issues and concerns and answer questions about how I work over the phone.
PLEASE NOTE THAT I CANNOT OFFER CONCESSIONS BUT AM VERY HAPPY TO SEE PEOPLE FORTNIGHTLY.
Once you have committed to therapy sessions, they must be paid for every week or fortnight, I do not accept cancellations except for illness. See my website for more details.
I am absolutely committed to respecting diversity and always happy to work with clients from all ethnic backgrounds, most disabilities*, and gay and lesbian community. I am not qualified as a family therapist so do not work with people under 16.
*I have a home practice but at the moment no wheelchair access, so I would be happy to see a disabled person in their own home provided privacy can be guaranteed.
I'M NOT A FINANCIAL COUNSELLOR IN THE PRACTICAL SENSE.
IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING WITH FINANCIAL ISSUES, PAYING FOR COUNSELLING MIGHT SEEM OUT OF THE QUESTION.
BUT IF YOU SUSPECT THAT YOU ARE CREATING FINANCIAL CRISES FOR PSYCHOEMOTIONAL REASONS (EG: SPENDING AS DIVERSION, SHOPAHOLIC BEHAVIOUR, OVERLY STRESSED ABOUT DEBT) I CAN HELP.
BEING IN THERAPY AND BUDGETING FOR IT COULD BE ONE OF THE FIRST STEPS TOWARDS HEALING.
