About me

People choose to come to therapy for a variety of reasons.  I see people who are dealing with  depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship difficulties, abuse, work related issues, ageing, living with illness. I work with adults of any age, ethnicity, sexual persuasion and religion and also young people between the ages of 11 and 18. I work with individuals and can offer long-term or short-term, face-to-face work, whichever is appropriate for you.

A qualified counsellor with over 9 years experience, I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework.  I am trained in psychodynamic and person-centred counselling and integrate these approaches as much as possible in my work with clients. As well as being a counsellor, I am also a researcher and a lecturer. Research and lecturing interests include ADHD, parenting, and the psychology of violent relationships.  

All counselling sessions are an hour long.  In the first session we discuss the options for how best to progress.  We agree how long the counselling will last and I explain the counselling approach I will take.

All the work is private, confidential and non-judgemental.
