About me

I have worked as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor for 15 years, both with individuals and groups. I use a psychodynamic and Existential approach in my practice, however over the years I have continued my professional development and will use the best approach to meet my clients individual needs.

I have experience working in both organisations and the NHS, where I primarily work with clients who have suffered very undermining experiences in childhood, which have had a profound impact on their identity and how they see themselves, their ability to manage their emotions and interpersonal relationships. It is here that I specialised in working with trauma, complex needs and PTSD both with individuals and groups.

My work in private practice is more varied, and includes clients with a wide range of presenting concerns, including anxiety, depression, bereavement, addictions, or those who have questions about life and relationships, their sexuality, parenting, or how to manage certain life transitions, such as a break-up, redundancy or significant life changes.

Choosing to invest in yourself is an important decision, I work offering both short term and longer-term, open ended therapy. I am able to offer a confidential space where I will value your time and equally invest in your future, offering care and concern be it a road to recovery or an exploratory transition. I hope our work together will give you the tools you need to progress in your future.

Whatever your particular concern, please make contact for an initial consultation, so that we can think about how best to progress from here.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
