About me

I offer a confidential place where you can be free to bring what matters to you. With eighteen years' practice in the NHS and privately, to help you find your way.  Let's start by asking: 

Why would you come for therapy? When we’d say, for example, it is for anxiety, depression and its opposite, for expectations, loss, issues with relationships or self esteem, we try to get across how we feel. But in the privacy of our own thoughts, what we do really feel tends to be more complicated, and individual.

I'll work with you to explore your personal 'Why' and what you make of it with the different aspects of your life. Each approach is tailored to your individual needs - not a formula.

What are the sessions for? On the one hand, to help you with your struggles or distress, and when feeling ‘stuck’, to look for ways to change. On the other hand, they are about getting to know yourself better.

Have you tried to change things with positive thoughts, but found that parts of your life remain quite perplexing or hard to come to terms with?

I have been working with talking therapy and imagery to get in touch with such elusive, difficult aspects. What would they mean to you? In the sessions, together we'll discover patterns from the past, and new ways for the future.

First meeting

At an initial consultation, we’ll discuss in person your questions, your circumstances and individual needs.

It is not meant to be a formal assessment. Rather, it would be a time or us to listen to what brings you to psychotherapy or counselling, and have a chance to think about the next step. We'd also discuss the fees, but this first meeting is without charge.
