I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, a UKCP Registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and a Relate Trained Couple Therapist. I have been practising as a therapist for a 27 years working with both individuals and couples.
I offer supervision to both student and trained therapists.
I use psychoanalytic theory to draw links between the past and the present in an attempt to understand unconscious roots in present day thoughts and behaviours.
I have much experience of short term work however I also work long-term. I have treated people with depression, anxiety, phobias and have much success helping people with alcohol addiction.
