About me

These are strange and difficult times and you may be experiencing the need for support or help with the difficulties in your life?

Do you  have a sense of things not being right for you at this time?  You may be in crisis, or have a feelings of deep unhappiness or anxiety, or you may have a specific issue that you feel you need to talk about.

Do you feel that you have to cope alone because those around you don't really understand you or are part of your particular problem? Psychotherapy can give you someone to talk to and someone who will listen to you without judgement and support and help restore your confidence and your sense of well being.

As well as a practising psychotherapist, I have worked in a variety of organisations and am aware of the stress that anyone of us can face, in our jobs or through unemployment and how this can impact on on our lives and on our relationships.

I am now offering Online sessions which will still enable us to explore your feelings and particular issues.

Sometimes a few sessions may help you to make sense of your life or perhaps a longer term approach may be more suitable. We will always work at your pace.

Why Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy can help you make sense of what is happening and can facilitate changes helping you to feel more at ease and in control of your life.

Psychotherapy tends to be longer term, in-depth work than counselling although the issues are often the same.

Further information

What is Core Process Psychotherapy?

Core Process Psychotherapy is a mindfulness-based approach drawing on both Western psychological theory and mindfulness training.

We each shape our personality into a unique form which we identify as ‘me’ through which we relate to the outer world.

This therapeutic approach helps you explore how you experience yourself and others in the present moment.

Your experiences in life, even from your first moments, can move you away from an inner sense of well-being.

By touching in with greater awareness to your inner sense of well-being, your true potential will begin to reveal itself.

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.

My therapy room and all all facilities are on the ground floor. It is suitable for wheelchairs There is sometimes on road parking but there is a car park very close by.
