About me

I offer a flexible counselling and psychotherapy service to individuals on a short- and long-term basis.  For those clients who, because of work and other commitments, are unable to meet on weekdays, sessions are available in the evenings, Monday to Friday, and on Saturday mornings.

My practice, which is is integrative, is principally informed by the psychodynamic and humanistic traditions; when appropriate, I also use CBT and other techniques.

Training, qualifications & experience

As well as a BA (Hons) in Sociology and a Certificate in Further Education, I hold the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and MA in Applied Psychoanalytic Theory from Goldsmiths, University of London, where I trained counsellors for 15 years.  My experience is extensive and has included working with young people (16+), the depressed and/or anxious, the traumatized, and those struggling with relationship difficulties, drug misuse, sexual orientation and practice(s), and bereavement.

Member organisations


Accredited register membership


I offer short- and long-term counselling / therapy. Still convinced that everyday therapeutic support should be available to everybody, let's say £50 a session - when you've got it. I work for less, depending on income. In my neck of the woods, 50 is way over the top. We'll negotiate the fee for the first (last?) session.

Further information

Areas of expertise include working with relationship issues, drug (mis)use, depression, anxiety, bereavement, issues of sexual identity and practice, low self-esteem, and life-cycle changes.
