I offer effective, open ended, down to earth and client-focused psychotherapy and dating coaching services. I would be happy to work with you on issues including but not limited to depression, relationships / friendships, social difficulties, dating confidence, employment, drugs / alcohol, shyness, anxiety, fertility, sexuality and self confidence.
As my client you'll benefit from my enthusiasm about the work, my first hand experience of other walks of professional life and my psychotherapy training and experience.
In sessions, we can work on issues causing you frustration and personal anguish or focus on helping you achieve specific personal goals.
My website contains more information about psychotherapy, dating coaching and how I can help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
After a successful previous corporate career, I became interested in work that was more directly related to people's well-being. Since 2000, psychotherapy evolved from my hobby to my profession. For me psychotherapy / psychology is an on-going interest and not just a job.
