About me

My experience as a therapist over nearly three decades has been both extensive and varied. The different contexts in which I have worked have enriched the experience I have gained.  This has enabled me to develop helpful and creative ways of responding to those who for one reason or another are looking for Counselling. 
Many of the people I see have come to work through issues in relationships or because of depression or feelings of anxiety.  I also see many who have suffered losses and those who have chronic illnesses themselves or in a member of their family.

The Counselling and Psychotherapy I offer aims to work gently with people.  I work towards understanding with them what is underneath and behind their difficulties so that they can be empowered to make the most of their potential.

At its best Psychotherapy is a creative process which enables people to be in touch with themselves in a liberating and enriching way and I attempt to work in this way.

I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I offer sessions to individuals and to couples.  I also offer SKYPE sessions.
