About me

I am a BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor with 16 years experience. I have worked in NHS GP surgeries, charities and universities. I work with people from all backgrounds who are experiencing mental and emotional distress. It may be that life has come to feel overwhelming which could be due to difficulties at home, work, intimate relationships or a bereavement. I offer a chance to explore feelings in a safe, non judgmental environment. Psychodynamic counselling is based on the belief that helping people understand the underlying roots of their difficulties is usually more effective than specific advice, reassurance or behavioural training.

I offer both brief therapy (6 to 12 sessions) or longer term work. Sessions are 50 minutes and weekly.
