About me

I have worked with a variety of clients, adults and young people, both privately and for the NHS. My style of psychotherapy is solution focused and flexible. I tend to focus not just on the causation of the presenting problem but on your immediate needs and your short and long term well-being. Some clients see me twice a week, others visit once a month. You are the expert on how often you require therapy.

I have experience with:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • OCD
  • grief
  • post traumatic stress and embitterment disorder
  • addiction
  • self harming
  • relationship issues
  • trust.

For some, room-based therapy can be exactly what is required to explore your true nature. For others, I also offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy which is the same as traditional talking psychotherapy, expect it takes place outdoors and involves interacting with horses. Carefully designed activities are introduced to enable you to reach your goal, where the horse becomes the metaphor for whatever challenges you may be experiencing in life. As a professional horse trainer and Certified Monty Roberts Instructor, I interweave my psychotherapy skills to provide this efficient and refreshing form of therapy. It can be a very effective method for some people as communicating with horses often gets right to the heart of the matter. No previous horse experience is necessary. All activities take place on the ground (ie no riding is involved). For further details, visit
