About me

Originally I established a private practice in Oxford in 2002, which I held for many years...until I moved to Cheltenham (Gloucestershire)...where I now hold two practices.

My central CHELTENHAM PRACTICE is a quiet cosy room within Essential Space, near The Wilson Gallery in Cheltenham...with free parking about 3 minutes' walk away.

My other CHELTENHAM PRACTICE is near the top end of Pittville Park, off Tommy Taylor Lane, in a quiet attractive location, with very close & easy off-road parking.

I am contactable via email, text, and phone. I will respond promptly to any message.

I encourage an initial conversation by phone (though email is fine, if preferred), prior to your initial therapy session, as this gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about therapy with me, gfet a sense of me through hearing my voice, and tell me anything you may wish me to know about you in advance of your initial session.

My essential personal & professional approach is a mindful one which regards each of us as a human be-ing, while recognising each person's unique self. This translates easily into the way I work. I begin by recognising your being, your experience & life situation with sensitivity - taking care to match your needs and pace - as you engage in the process of therapy.

You may be considering therapy for the first time... or having had some experience of therapy in the past. As you may or may be aware, therapy - with the right therapist for you - provides a way to make the best of your self and your life in a truly meaningful way, from right now... on into your future. As such, therapy offers you a genuinely rewarding investment in true quality of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been practising as a therapist from 2002, having first qualified in Integrative Counselling, and then in Transpersonal Psychotherapy.

I bring to my therapy work many years' experience as a counsellor & psychotherapist, plus many years' previous experience in the fields of fine art, meditation and mindfulness, special needs education, and adult acute psychiatric care.
