About me

If you have reached the point of seeking counselling or therapy you may well be feeling a little vulnerable. So, it's very important to find someone that you can trust and feel comfortable working with. I work in a way that recognises the importance and value of a safe and secure therapeutic relationship. My relational approach is attachment based and interactive. I enjoy working creatively with clients who find this approach helpful. (This could include imagery, story, metaphor, drawing, etc) I am also comfortable working cognitively and behaviourally when clients find this more useful. I have a particular interest in the connection between bodily symptoms and psychological wellbeing and so aim to work with all facets of a person's self.

The service I offer is confidential, non-judgemental and based on a Humanistic philosophy. I am UKCP registered. I offer individual sessions on a time limited or open ended basis. Availability to suit, days and times flexible.

My practice is easily accessible by metro or bus and there is also parking available on Holly Ave West. The initial consultation is 90 minutes. This includes a free half hour meeting at which I discuss the services I offer and during which you can see if counselling and psychotherapy are for you. If you decide to proceed, the assessment session is £40.
