About me

Hello and welcome. UKCP and Bupa Registered Psychotherapist, I have over 12 years of personal development experience, working with adults and young people, both privately and for the NHS.

I work with individuals and couples.

My style of psychotherapy is solution focused and flexible. I tend to focus not just on the causation of the presenting problem but on your immediate needs and your short and long term well-being.

I offer both room-based and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy ( This is an experiential embodied form of therapy, which takes place on the ground. No previous horse experience is necessary.

Some clients see me twice a week, others visit once a month. You are the expert on how often you require therapy.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Couples work
  • Stress
  • OCD
  • Grief
  • Post-traumatic stress and embitterment disorder
