Based in private practice in peaceful woodland surroundings near Stansted, I offer outcome-oriented counselling, psychotherapy and coaching, both long and short term. I specialise in helping clients to recover from deep fears, abuse, bereavement and trauma, both recent and distant. I have helped many clients experiencing depression, anxiety-based, loss and relationship difficulties. Also workplace stress, career development, redundancy and management related issues. I use a blend of analytic, cognitive and other approaches to tailor treatment according to each client's presenting difficulties, their outcomes, and their unique personality.
Supervisees working with me benefit from an understanding of analytical ("depth") psychology and a wide range of modern therapeutic approaches, including how they might be successfully combined in practice. Especially in today's pressured environment, all health professionals can benefit enormously from regular confidential consultation, which can be appropriately tailored to their needs and the requirements of professional membership organisations. I have also supervised candidates in training through to accreditation (and beyond), and those who need supervision for their research project as part of their professional qualification. I welcome enquiries from individuals and groups.

Concessions offered for
I am very experienced in online psychotherapy and have been working exclusively this way since March 2020 offering the same level of service and benefit as usual. There is no difference in efficacy, although the experience is a little different. To provide optimal therapeutic attention during a time when many people need support, I have decided not to offer face to face sessions for the foreseeable future. This eliminates covid-19 risks and the practical burden of scrupulous covid hygiene during busy clinic days. The major counselling/psychotherapy professional bodies, medical health insurers and professional liability insurers are fully supportive of therapists choosing to work remotely during the covid-19 pandemic.
