About me

Where do you begin to choose a counsellor or psychotherapist? You must be overwhelmed by all the different registrations and qualifications. Please be assured in that I am UKCP registered as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I am a Doctor of Psychotherapy and I hold a Master's degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling. In addition, I have over 30,000 hours of clinical experience over thirty years. I was founder and Director of a Counselling and Psychotherapy centre for twenty years working mainly with adults. Prior to this I worked with adolescents in schools.

At our first meeting, currently by phone,  Skype or Zoom, you will gain a professional assessment in order for us to establish your treatment needs. I offer long term psychoanalytic psychotherapy and short-term counselling and psychotherapy.

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy places your presenting difficulties in the context of your past history, so we will take a long look at your childhood experiences and relationships. If you can recall your dreams and want to explore their meaning we can use them in the sessions to allow us to learn what is at core of your concerns.

A quicker approach is through a process known as EMDR [Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing]. This technique is particularly useful in cases of anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, phobias and complex grief. It allows us to switch off the anxiety, then we can explore things on a greater depth, if you still want to.

Please check my fees and availability and if they suit you book a free introductory call.
