About me

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.

Further information

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

Spacious consulting room with separate WC, at ground floor level with direct access. Ample free parking. Standard width doorway may restrict some wheelchair users.
