About me

I have over 10 years' experience in working with many different types of issues and can offer you a professional and confidential service in an accessible, comfortable and safe environment. My approach is psychodynamic. This involves us working together to uncover the less conscious aspects of your thoughts, feelings and emotions, so that you can come to understand yourself more fully. This greater insight should help you to make long-lasting changes, so that you can lead a more fulfilled life.

I offer one to one counselling with young people from age 14 and individual adults.

I work:

  • with a wide range of issues such as: anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, addictions, low self-esteem — as well as the many other concerns which may be impacting your quality of life and emotional well-being.

  • open-endedly for as long as you wish, or in a shorter more focussed way — and we can agree what is best for you when we first meet, and

  • Monday to Thursday with evening appointments available.

My areas of expertise are set out further down.


Why counselling?

It may be you have a specific problem or a general feeling of being 'low'. Perhaps you feel that talking to friends and family isn’t enough - or that you’ll be judged and criticised.

You may think that there isn’t anyone you can turn to. If you are in this position, you can talk to me.

I am a professional counsellor who is experienced in listening empathetically and objectively. I won’t offer direct advice or judge, but I will help you to gain greater understanding - and make sense - of what is happening.

Where do I practice?

I practice from a wheelchair accessible, comfortable and peaceful room at:
