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).
