My aim is to support you in improving your quality of life, whatever this means for you. It could include: more fulfilment at work, a richer life outside of work, stronger connections with others, healthier intimate relationships, or a better sex life. We will work together to identify what you hope for and what stops you from getting it. I will challenge and support you to work through any unfinished business from the past; resolve unprocessed emotions; and develop your awareness so that you can live your life more closely in line with what matters most to you.

My experience includes working for many years with offenders in the prison service, working as a staff counsellor at London Fire Brigade, and as lead therapist at Nightingale (psychiatric) Hospital. My areas of specialty are: anxiety, depression, trauma, and sex & relationships.
How I work:
I regard therapy as a creative process between me and my client. I draw from all of my training and experience, paying close attention to the responses and the feedback from the person who I am working with. We work together to create the therapy that is most suitable for the individual. For this reason, no two therapies are alike. In all cases, a good working relationship between me and my client is fundamental.
The therapy begins with an initial 'assessment' session where we gather information about each other and make a decision as to whether we both feel that we can work well together. From there I generally suggest we work for six sessions, at which point we can review whether we both feel it is appropriate to continue working together. Therapy sessions will take place at the same time each week for fifty minutes.
