About me

There are times in most of our lives, often in periods of significant change or key transitions, when even if we have the support of friends and family, this is not sufficient or appropriate. I provide an independent and professional context in which issues can be explored, new perspectives gained and unhelpful patterns changed. I have significant training and experience working with abuse, bereavement, depression and relationship problems in particular, but given my number of years as a therapist, there are unlikely to be any issues with which I am not familiar. Please see the list below for guidance.
I offer a free 30 minute session so that we can meet to dicuss what makes you consider having counselling/psychotherapy. At this session we will also discuss fees, length of session, likely length of therapy etc. If we decide to go ahead, I will give you a written contract. My consulting rooms have disabled access.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a well qualified and experienced therapist, with a first degree in Psychology and English and several postgraduate diplomas in different counselling/psychotherapy approaches. I have been accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy for more than 25 years years. I  worked as a counsellor within the NHS for approximately 30 years. I have considerable experience offering counselling and clinical supervison within Education, Employee Assistance Programmes and the Private and Voluntary Sectors. I am fully insured.
