About me

I am a qualified and registered UKCP Psychotherapist and have been working in private practice for over 20 years.  I work with individuals and couples.

I work with a wide range of difficulties and concerns such as childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship breakdown, a sense of meaninglessness, negative thoughts and behaviour, work related issues, and bereavement. (For further information please see full list of areas I work with at bottom of this page.)

I mainly work longer term offering in depth psychotherapy.  Although I am able to work to a time limited model depending on individual need.

I work with couples who maybe struggling with communication difficulties, or relationship breakdown. I work to support both parties to help them understand how they got to where they are and to gain a better understanding of one another and how to think about moving forward.

I am currently working online due to COVID-19 and will return to face2face once it is safe to do so.  If you would like an initial free 20 minute session to see if I am able to help you please let me know.

I am a Supervisor and offer supervision/consultancy to Psychotherapists/Counsellors and organisations.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
