About me

You may be finding life difficult or painful. This may be due to a relationship problem or something that you experienced in the past. You may feel you can barely cope with the demands and responsibilities of life. You may be suffering from depression or a general sense of dissatisfaction. These feelings and thoughts can be explored in the safety and containment of counselling.

I have many years of experience working with individuals both in counselling centres and in private practice. I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. My training in psychodynamic theory and practice enables me to work with many kinds of emotional difficulties.

Initially we would arrange a consultation to discuss the best way forward for you. After that, counselling would be once weekly for 50 minutes. I can offer open-ended or short-term therapy.

Making the initial contact can be difficult but please phone or email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF) and have an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, a programme validated by Roehampton University and accredited by BACP. WPF has a reputation for being one of the leading counselling and psychotherapy training organisations.

I am a:
Registrant of The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

Member of The Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC)

I subscribe to the Codes of Ethics and Practice of these organisations.
