About me

I work with men and women who are experiencing personal difficulties and suffering in their lives to help gain a better understanding of those issues.  These problems can include addiction (in which I am a specialist), anxiety & depression, panic attacks, relationship problems, bereavement, low self-esteem and self-confidence, stress, work-related issues, and anger management.

My aim is to work with you to address your issues and to help you live a more fulfilling and happy life. We are all unique and I offer a safe, friendly, supportive, accepting and confidential space where you have time to share whatever is worrying you.

I work to an integrated model which means that I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches to suit you, your personality, cultural background and life experience.  I offer to work with clients long and short term and this can be determined at our initial meeting.

I have worked for agencies which specialises in substance misuse, both in-patient (residential) and in the community, as well as the NHS Primary Care Trust, NHS Medical Practice, as well as private practice.

All sessions last 50 minutes and will usually take place at the same time each week.  I offer flexible appointments (including evenings), Monday to Saturday, to accommodate clients. The cost per session is £40-£50 (concessions are available where appropriate).

All my work is supervised in accordance with the BACP guidelines and I attend regular clinical supervision.
