About me

I am a psychodynamically trained psychotherapist with over 20 years experience of NHS and private work. I am able to offer an individually tailored approach to a variety of problems. Although initially trained psychodynamically I believe in offering an approach which will best meet the needs of the individual which includes solution focused and cognitive methods.

I am also a qualified Interpersonal Psychotherapist (IPT) and supervisor.

I have taught on the psychodynamic counselling course at Reading University.

I am able to offer both short term and long term help to those with a variety of problems including relationship difficulties, depression, loss, anxiety, anorexia, bulimia and binge eating.
