About me

I have a practice in Harley Street London and Wokingham Berkshire. I have over 20years experience working in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. I use an eclectic approach in my practice, this means I can adapt my skills to the needs of individual clients rather than the client having to adapt and fit into my approach.

I work with both brief solution focused therapeutic approaches and open ended long term basis. I have extensive experience working with addictions using the 12 step model alongside more traditional approaches to counselling.

I also have experience of working with clients with a variety of issues including;

• relationship issues • stress  • low self-esteem  • depression •anxiety  • panic attacks  • self confidence  • self-harm

•  anger  • bereavement  • work related issues

I believe that my clients have the answers to ease whatever anxiety or chaos they may be experiencing. Using the counselling time to explore issues in a non threatening 'safe' environment can give clients the opportunity to explore feelings and fears.

I hope to offer a supportive environment that empowers the client to look at 'how' they are living their life and reflect on whether this is what they want or, what they think they should be doing. They can then move towards leading a more fulfilling and contented life.
