I believe therapy can offer a safe space for self-discovery that provides you with an opportunity to creatively discover how you want to live. I am particularly inclined to listen to how an individual describes their world, as I believe each person experiences life in a unique way that can rarely be communicated to someone else.
As a psychotherapist, I have worked in settings with clients from the most varied backgrounds, who came to therapy for many reasons, including depression, the breakdown of a relationship, grieving, general anxiety and anxiety about specific topics such as their relationships, careers and health. I also focus on the metaphysical meaning of physical illness to improve wellbeing.
As much as family and friends may want to help their loved ones in such a situation, it can be challenging as it can put undue stress on their relationship. The fee for individuals is £70.
My experience working with couples has included the following: emotional and physical intimacy difficulties, separation/divorce - including couples with children, infidelity, grieving and excessive use of anger.
I can facilitate a dialogue when communication has broken down, with the aim of re-establishing a common ground to resolve the issue. I appreciate how difficult it may be to open up to a third person, and I will endeavour to make this process as comfortable as possible by checking in with both of you throughout our sessions. The fee for couples is £120.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my work or to book an appointment.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
