About me

If you’re looking for counselling to help with a particular situation, or for open-ended psychotherapy please get in touch. I see adults suffering from a wide-range of difficulties confidentially at my office in central Cambridge.

I have seven years clinical experience in clinics and in private practice, five years of counselling and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy training, and have been through Jungian analysis myself.

First Steps

You are invited to make contact to organise a time for a brief telephone conversation. This is to decide if an initial consultation would be useful.

At initial consultation sessions, we meet to discuss your situation and talk through your personal history. They are £60 each. The objective is to find the right treatment for you. Sometimes a number of sessions are held before we decide whether to:

. Start open-ended psychotherapy, aimed at moving the deep-seated causes of psychological pain, and start to re-align you with yourself and other people.

. Start counselling for a limited number of sessions, usually not fewer than 16, to ease a particular difficulty.

. Consider referral to a colleague or a specialist service.

Special Arrangements for Covid

Social distancing and hygiene arrangements are in place to allow for work in the room.
