About me

I am a fully qualified, highly experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor. My clinical practice is flexible, and hopes to meet the different needs of individuals, couples and families on both a short and long-term basis. I work within an integrative approach, informed by psychodynamic and systemic models. I work with CBT as and when required.

My practice has been running for over ten years, helping many people through very difficult emotional and psychological periods of their lives - including; relationship difficulties; depression, anxiety and childhood related traumas. My approach is flexible, depending on individual needs.  

My clinical practice also offers several specialist areas as outlined below: 

Couple therapy; having experienced good success in helping couples improve their relationships, gain further understanding of their relational dynamics and overcome them. 

Having trained at Kings College London (Institute of Psychiatry) I specialise in drug and alcohol dependency, recovery and have success in helping people work towards and maintain abstinence.  

Narcissistic abuse recovery: I have excellent success in helping people identify, understand and recover from narcissistic abuse, further enabling them to identify and recover from codependent relationship / communication / behavioural patterns.  please visit - Narc & Co LTD -

Key details

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.


In person

I offer supervision to both trainee and qualified counsellors / psychotherapists working in, broadly speaking, the integrative (psychodynamic / humanistic) tradition.
