About me

Hello, and thank you for reading my page.

Let me help you understand why you have learned to behave the way you do, and how others relate to you.

Please note that during this Corona Virus crisis I am only working via Skype / FaceTime etc.

Getting started: Phone or email me, and I will be happy to help.

I understand how overwhelming it can be to see so many names and profiles, so if you would just like to ask some questions, phone me or email me, with no obligation.Then, if you would like to meet, my first session with you is always free. During that session we can discuss what it is you would like to gain from counselling.  After that, if you feel that you would be comfortable working with me, we can continue weekly or by arrangement.  Just call or email me, and I will be happy to answer your questions.
