It is likely most of us will suffer from emotional problems at some time in our lives. From coping with day to day stress of busy modern-day living to perhaps more deep seated issues, working with a counsellor may help. If you feel ready to take the first step into talking about your problems I would be pleased to hear from you. I am an accredited member of BACP and have years of experience working with problems in all areas.
My private consulting room is in Aspley Guise (Milton Keynes) - 2 minutes from M1 J13 and 12 minutes from A5. There is plenty of free parking and I am within easy reach of Milton Keynes and Bedfordshire.
Training, qualifications & experience
My experience includes years as a GP practice counsellor, working with university students, employee assistance programmes and private practice. I understand many different kinds of problems including depression, anxiety and panic attacks, trauma, abuse of all kinds, eating disorders, relationship problems, coping with injury/illness, low self esteem, stress, work-related problems, identity and sexuality issues, anger, life crisis, post-natal depression, bereavement and other forms of loss. I also enjoy working with young people and would be happy to offer an introductory session to decide whether the service I offer is right for you.

Monday to Friday
As a psychodynamic counsellor I look at the impact of past experiences on current functioning and relationships. I combine this mode of working with more directive therapies, such as CBT and solution focussed thinking to tailor counselling to the individual and their specific needs. It has been very rewarding over the years for me to see the change and recovery people can experience when, with support and encouragement, they have gained self-awareness and taken responsibility for their own lives.
I am accredited by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abide by their Code of Ethics.
