As a fully qualified and UKCP registered psychotherapist, I am committed to providing psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. Whether you want to work short or long-term, my aim is to work creatively and with integrity, to help you safely explore what is troubling you.
We all at sometime or another reach a stage in our lives when talking to somebody in confidence, outside of our situation, can be of enormous benefit. Psychotherapy is a talking therapy and offers you the opportunity to do just that with someone who is experienced, empathic and non-judgemental. By talking with a therapist, you can begin to understand the events of your past and how they affect you today so that going forward you can choose to do things differently. For many clients this is deeply valuable experience and can have a long lasting effect.

Psychotherapy is about relationship, so it is important that you find the right therapist for you. I therefore offer an initial exploratory session so we can start to get to know each other and to help you decide whether you would like to work with me. You do not need to decide on the spot but can go away and think about it. There is no commitment at this stage.
If you decide to go ahead, we find a day and time that suits us both and a date for us to start and we commit to meet each week.
Just give me a call or drop me an email.
