About me

I have over 40 years experience in the helping professions, formerly a nurse SRN/RMN. I managed a day service in London that offerred group and individual therapy for people suffering from extreme anxiety and depression. I have been registered with The British Psychoanalytic Council for 18 years.

I would describe myself as friendly and down to earth, from a working class background.

It can be daunting seeking help but usually worth taking that first step to see how it feels.

What happens in your first session.

1. What brings you?

2.Your history.

3.Hopes for counselling.

The setting explained, your safe space and confidentiality. A place to offload and leave with the counsellor to pick up next time.

Folowing on; do you wish to return? You may wish to go away and think about whether it felt right for you or trying out a few sessions then review.
