About me

I am an experienced counsellor, specialising in working with men and those who are new to therapy. I often work with those who are undergoing life changes such as parenthood, relationship and sexual difficulties and career change. I offer a space in which issues that can be difficult to discuss can be explored in a confidential and non-judgemental way. These issues can include struggles with intimacy, anxiety and lack of confidence.

The way I work usually involves integrating both psychodynamic and CBT approaches. This involves looking below the surface to understand the roots of the problem as well as developing strategies to help you to cope better and interrupt patterns of unhelpful behaviour and ways of thinking.

We will go at your pace, for as long as you need, tackling difficult subjects when you feel you’re ready. I am experienced in both open-ended and short-term, focused work.

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to book a one-off session at which you can explain what brings you in and we can plan a way forward.
