30 Hampton Road
I offer psychotherapeutic counselling to individuals, relationship counselling to couples and clinical supervision to counsellors and health professionals, at London Bridge and Teddington. I also offer the unique opportunity for 'Walk and Talk' sessions in Bushy Park, believing in the therapeutic value of counselling in the outdoors.
In the past 20 years I have helped hundreds of individuals and many couples make a difference to their lives. My approach is warm, caring, curious and open. I offer a bespoke service, shaped around your needs and the difficulties you bring.
Working with me brings you the benefit of a rich and varied life and career. I have represented Britain's cultural interests in Indonesia and Greece working as a librarian for The British Council, been acting director of Mencap in Wales and their leisure adviser, been an employee counsellor with First Great Western Trains, an NHS counsellor in the Shetland Islands, worked in deprived communities in the South Wales valleys, advocated for people with learning disabilities, and been creative in community arts. I have been a volunteer with UNA Exchange and VSO. I have also experienced loss and tragedy and know at first hand the benefits of working with a professional therapist and the changes it can bring.
