About me

I offer time and a space to reflect upon what is causing you to feel pain.
People often feel depressed or anxious and they experience a loss of their capacity for enjoyment; for accomplishment in work or other spheres; and in personal relationships. In time limited brief therapy (6 -12 sessions) and open ended face to face therapy we explore these feelings and their causes, looking for a way to understand them and to work through them.

I also offer sessions via Skype, although I prefer to do this after a face to face relationship is established.

Prior to qualification I spent many years as a senior executive in a multinational publishing company, and latterly I mentored and coached senior executives.
I am vice-chair of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
