Covid-19 Owing to the current situation, I have moved online and all sessions will be conducted using a variety of online media depending on personal preference. You may be nervous about having therapy in this way but I can assure you that it works well. If this would be of interest to you, please contact me and I will arrange a telephone conversation for us to talk through the way forward
Whilst many people experience times in their lives when they feel overwhelmed by particular events or situations, there are others who ‘find life difficult’ and struggle to manage the inevitable challenges that life brings.
Whatever has brought you to think about therapy, you are welcome to contact me by telephone or e mail. I will try to see you for an initial session within a few days, during which we will discuss the nature of your difficulties and the best way forward for you. This may be a small number of sessions to address a particular problem and help you to get back on track or, it may be longer-term therapy that will address the underlying issues that are preventing you from living your life to the full. If for any reason you do not feel I am the right person to help you, I will always do my best to suggest someone else
I am a professionally qualified and very experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. My experience gained over more than 25 years has included working in both the public and private sectors and has brought me into contact with a wide range of clients that have included, at one end of the scale, well-functioning individuals who have become overwhelmed by life events and at the other, individuals with severe and enduring difficulties.

I am also a specialist in addiction and work with individuals who have experienced or who are currently experiencing problems with addictive behaviour. This may be alcohol and/or drugs but equally could be to do with the compulsive use of food, internet, sex, exercise - in fact any behaviour that has got out of control and is causing a problem in your life.
