About me

Do you sometimes feel at a loss, confused, stuck or unhappy? Do you tell yourself that you have nothing to complain about and should just get on with it? Do you feel guilty about not feeling on top form? Counselling can make an enormous difference to people who have these or similar feelings. Seeking help does not mean you are inadequate; on the contrary, it is a constructive thing to do. It doesn't mean you are ill.

I offer confidential counselling or psychotherapy to professional, creative, successful people. People seek counselling for a huge variety of reasons, broadly because they feel they are not functioning as fully as they might be and their relationships are not what they might be. I have experience with depression and anxiety, family and marital difficulties, workplace difficulties, panic disorder, sexual abuse, trauma, personality disorder and offending behaviour.

I work with individuals on a once-a-week basis. People who take up open-ended psychotherapy have the chance to explore deeply the issues that bother them, that have contributed to forming the adults they now are, and that determine the quality of the relationships they form. Psychotherapy is a serious undertaking, but you will not be alone. It is a collaboration. You will have plenty of time to decide if this is the right way for you to go, and of course it is entirely up to you.

Time-limited counselling is also extremely effective for those who have a clearly defined problem associated with relationships, emotions, and the emotions around relationships. It is good for those who feel they can continue to build on their counselling in their everyday lives once their sessions are over. It would usually be from twelve to sixteen sessions.
