About me

I work with individuals and couples who are experiencing issues relating to low self esteem, depression, generalised anxiety disorder, stress, relationship worries, addictions, abuse, bullying, bereavement, problems at work, anger management, boarding school experiences, emotional problems expressed through physical illness and many other difficulties.

I am a UKCP Registered Counsellor/Psychotherapist working with my clients on short and long-term contracts, which means anything from six weeks to over a year.  I offer an integrative approach to therapy and draw on a number of different theories when working with clients. If we work together we will explore the difficulty you are experiencing now, your past and present relationships, the way you think about yourself and others and the way you behave in the world. As our relationship develops I will encourage you to explore your inner experiences to develop a deeper understanding of yourself and help open new paths.

During the Coronavirus pandemic I am working with all my clients online either using Zoom or FaceTime or over the telephone
