About me

We all experience difficult or emotionally troubled times in our lives. At such times talking to an experienced, qualified psychotherapist who can listen with an open mind and a non-judgmental attitude, understand and help make sense of what is unfolding, can be of lasting benefit.

I work with issues including:
- fear, anxiety and the depression that is often associated with these feelings
- relationship difficulties whether with friends, family or at work
- panic attacks
- suicidal ideation and self-harm
- eating disorders & addictions
- Asperger Syndrome and other Autistic Spectrum disorders

I have a particular interest in life’s transitions, in coming to terms with changed circumstances such as:
- bereavement
- the forming or dissolution of relationships
- changed or lost employment
-‘empty nest syndrome’ – the perfectly natural feelings of grief and loneliness parents or guardians may experience when their children first leave home.

I specialise in working with older people and am founder and facilitator of Silver Circle a therapeutic support group for those who imay be particularly affected by increasing mental or physical frailty, reduced mobility and social isolation.

Telephone/Skype sessions
I offer sessions by telephone or Skype for clients who, for whatever reason, are unable to travel to see me.

For brief, solution-focused therapy I normally offer 6-12 sessions in which we would concentrate on a specific issue.

Longer-term work with deeper, more fundamental issues would be on an open-ended basis.

Other Services
In addition to the above I also offer:

Clinical Supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors, psychotherapists and others in the helping professions

Academic Assistance to trainee counsellors and psychotherapists writing essays

MA/PhD Dissertation Superivison and my experience as 'research mentor'

I would be happy to talk to you about counselling, psychotherapy or any of the other services I offer so please contact me:

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.
