About me

The style of counselling I practice encompasses Existential, Humanistic and Cognitive approaches. I adapt the emphasis depending on the needs of each client. As an experienced professional in psychotherapy and counselling with a previous extensive career in business, I can provide support that embraces both worlds - of personal and work life - and relationship difficulties wherever they arise.

Counselling is a joint endeavour where we explore together how you currently live your life and make decisions in order to understand your experiences and see where some thoughts, behaviours or beliefs may be undermining you.   This helps you identify areas where you may be able to make changes to overcome present difficulties and become more accepting of yourself, more relaxed and happier. The focus is on current issues  and your hopes for the future. It is forward looking.

"I realise now that if you had told me what my problems were it wouldn’t have worked, I needed to find out for myself – with you there, us exploring together" (said by a client towards the end of his therapy)

Issues I've helped clients with include:-

  • anxiety

  • bereavement and loss

  • depression

  • feeling empty

  • low self worth

  • social anxiety/lack of confidence

  • relationship difficulties

  • separation and divorce

  • loss of direction

  • work issues

  • career changes

  • ageing


Counselling gives you space to think things through and gain new perspectives on your concerns, enabling you to understand yourself better and evaluate your options more clearly. In turn you can find a renewed sense of direction and zest for life.

People often start therapy because of a sudden crisis such as divorce, bereavement, illness or redundancy.  Others come because of a 'slow burn' crisis like chronic anxiety that is undermining and limiting their life.

Having worked through their original issue people often surprise themselves by going on to find well-being they did not have before, becoming a revitalised, more ‘filled out’ person.

There is no age barrier. It is never too late. I have worked with clients in their 20s through to those in their 70s.
