Supervisor & Psychotherapist with over 35 years dedicated to working with others in their quest for well-being.
My wide training & experience have given me an integrative approach, with the ability to suit my response to the issues at hand. But more important than the method, is the ability to help you contact your own unique, inherit ability for development and become the Master of your life & choices.
The wonderful journey of my role in Mental Health was prompted when I was expecting my first child, I devoured everything I could read about parenthood! I then started studying Psychology, volunteered in a MIND centre, moved on to working in half-way homes with RICHMOND FELLOWSHIP & have never looked back!
As well as my experience in the UK I have lived & worked abroad, notably in France. Thus adding the skills & experience necessary for working with Expatriates, intercultural issues and all that implies major changes, upheavals and stress in today’s ever-changing World.
I suggest you contact me by email or phone to make a first initial appointment, we can discuss what is going on for you & how I can help. I will explain how I work, given your particular needs & what to expect.
I offer On-Line, Phone & Face to Face therapy.
Looking forward to walking with you and helping you on your way. Diane
