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.
