You might be struggling with something difficult in your life in the here and now, such as the loss of a loved one, or the traumatic breakdown of a relationship. Or perhaps you’re aware of vague, underlying feelings of sadness, anxiety or anger.
Maybe you feel trapped in a cycle of repeated disappointments with partners, friends and careers and don’t know why. It might feel impossible to get what you want, or even know what you want. It may feel like there’s no one to turn to.
Whether you know what the problem is, or even if you don’t, therapy can help. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself; to examine feelings, thoughts and motivations and gain understanding - the first step towards navigating a different, happier course.

An introductory 'getting to know you' session is £25. Standard fee per session is £40.
The therapy world can feel a little mysterious. A previous career outside the profession helps keep my feet on the ground and in touch with the world outside therapy where problems are not just theoretical. You’ll find me reliably compassionate and understanding of you and life’s struggles.
As well as working in private practice, I have also worked as:
- Therapist with Somerset Partnership NHS Trust
- Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with Time to Talk in West Berkshire providing free of charge counselling for people in West Berkshire with problems primarily arising from depression, anxiety and issues of self-worth.
I trained under the umbrella of the Humanistic and Integrative college of psychotherapy - you can find more details here on the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy website.
