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 and face2face.  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.
