A friend once asked me why people come to therapy.
My answer was ‘ there’s nowhere left to go.’
if you’re not sure where to go next, hopefully you’ve come to the right webpage.
I’m a psychotherapist and counsellor specialising in helping people feel better when they're going through a tough patch. Most of us end up there at some stage or another. Feel free to pick up the phone or ask me to call you. We can have a quick chat and see if I can be of help. I don’t charge for an initial phone call. If you’re happy to try an appointment we’ll arrange to see each other within a few days. From that initial meeting you can decide if therapy is for you - and/ or we click. From there I’d normally suggest a series of six meetings. Most major ‘here and now problems’ can be tackled in this period.
During these sessions we’d discuss if further therapy is a good idea to address long-standing stuff that’s upset you for a long time. There’s no hard or fast rule here. Everyone’s history is different.
I specialise in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, career issues and addictive behaviours.I do quite a bit of work with fed-up teenagers who are finding it hard to find their place in the world. I work in schools with pupils who are unhappy and getting into trouble.
I work from a clinic in central London every Monday, and work out of my Oxford clinic Tuesday to Friday where there is plenty of car parking and easy access from the ring road.
I see adults as well as teens.
I also have a particular interest working with sportsmen and women who are underachieving in their sport. I work for a professional football league club working with players, coaching staff and admin staff.
