About me

I have more than 10 years experience as a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapist both in the NHS and privately. I provide individual and group psychotherapy. I also have been a midwife for 35 years and  work in the NHS.

What help is available?

Are you anxious, maybe feeling low but not sure why this is happening to you at this time? Maybe stress in your life has brought on these feelings but you don’t know what to do to make things easier.
Ashton counselling and psychotherapy provides a range of confidential psychological help. Taking that first anxiety provoking step towards seeking help can be the first on the road to recovery.
I provide individual assessments to identify the kind of therapy which best suits your need. This could be short term help, 6-10 sessions weekly, which may be enough to make a significant difference to your difficulties, or more long term intensive therapy

You may be looking for more specialised help ?

My  specialties include:

  • working with pregnancy related psychological problems such as anxiety and/or depression.
  • anxiety about giving birth
  • anxiety and/or depression after birth in the postnatal period
  • women and couples traumatised by childbirth
  • working with mothers and their babies when there are relationship difficulties: sometimes its simply hard to be together in the beginning

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
