About me

I am an experienced, fully accredited psychotherapist and I work with individuals, couples and families. I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments. Psychotherapy and counselling are powerful and effective in making positive changes in our lives, they provide us with tools to deal with life in a more satisfying way.

I have undergone one of the most rigorous and challenging training programmes in Britain, and have been taught by some of the most experienced therapists in Europe and the US. I am highly committed to my own personal and professional development.

Beside my training as a psychotherapist working with individuals I also have specialist training and expertise in working with couples, both mixed gender and same sex, and with relationship problems.
I am passionate about helping both men and women to find a way forward with their problems, however those problems present themselves.

Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked in industry. I am a keen surfer and sailor and I am married with three children.

I am happy to have a no obligation conversation about psychotherapy and counselling and how it might help you. I offer evening and Saturday appointments and I also offer telephone and Skype appointments.

I am a graduate of the Spectrum training programme and in addition hold the following qualifications:
UKRC registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

I am committed to ongoing professional development and regular supervision.
