About me

I have over 20 years international experience as a counsellor/psychotherapist working with individuals (both young people and adults), couples and groups offering long term, short term or solution-focused therapy. I also offer supervision of psychotherapists, counsellors and professionals.

My special interest lies in treating trauma, especially childhood trauma and events which often cast a deep shadow over us in adult life. I have extensive experience working with survivors of rape and sexual abuse, addictions and issues relating to stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and bereavement.  I am interested in life transitions (personal and professional) and relationship issues. I’ve worked with people from all walks of life from directors, teachers, social workers, prisoners to working with young people.

I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and as such, I am required by law to acquire, keep, use and store all personal information in accordance with the rules and regulations outlined in the Data Protection Act 1998.

In addition I have enhanced DBS clearance.
