About me

People come for counselling to resolve an issue or behaviour concerning them. I will support you to addresses your concerns and supports you to find a more satisfying way of being with yourself and with others.  

Through sessions, people build an awareness of their short and long term behaviour patterns, the major influences in their life and how these have affected them.  

The aim is for people to learn more about their strengths, explore the possibility of change and build a stronger and more resilient foundation and to take charge in their lives.

I am a UKCP Reg. psychotherapist, providing counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples,  women's groups, and stress management groups. I provide relationship support to companies and organisations and am a co-leader of post graduate groups at Spectrum Therapy in London, a training and professional development organisation.

I founded The Terrace, Humanistic Psychotherapy and Complementary Health Centre in l994 and am a member of the Spectrum Association Centres.
