About me


I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with 23 years experience as a Psychotherapist in the NHS and in Private Practice. Prior to this, I held both clinical and managerial roles working in Mental Health Services in the NHS.

If you are reading this I imagine you may be struggling at the moment. Perhaps you may be finding it hard to cope with day to day life, work or with your relationships. Perhaps you may be experiencing confusing or unmanageable feelings or moods.

If this is the case, perhaps we can work together to explore what is happening to you and help you to understand your situation and feelings. We can then work together to think about what may need to change or be different for you to feel better, happier and more settled.

I can offer one to one treatment for the following issues:

  • Depression/anxiety
  • Personal crisis/stressful life events
  • Confidence/self esteem issues
  • Relationship problems, conflict, separation, divorce
  • The effects of abuse; emotional, physical or sexual
  • Eating disorders
  • Loss, bereavement, grief
  • Personality disorder
  • Work stress/conflict

I can also offer short term (6 session model) for couples.

About me and my approach

My experience enables me to work with a wide range of psychological difficulties, including complex psychological issues, challenging relationship difficulties as well as more straight forward psychological issues.

In my work as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist I offer a safe, confidential and compassionate space within which you can talk with me to reach an understanding of your difficulties and the underlying causes and current triggers.

Treatment can be short term or longer-term if your difficulties are more complex and/or longer standing.

The aims of therapy are to reduce distressing symptoms and to work towards a more balanced and healthy way of managing your feelings and relationships. This approach can enable sustained personal change and growth so you can move forward with your life.

Referral process

You can self refer by contacting me directly. A GP, Psychiatrist or other Health Care Professional can also refer you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in Mental Health Services for over 30 years within both inpatient and outpatient services, initially as an Occupational Therapist, then completing further intensive training to become a Psychotherapist.

Following completion of a Masters Degree I have worked as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist for 18 years within the NHS and the Private Sector. I have experience in individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy and in supervising other therapists. I am comfortable and confident in working with all age groups from 16 years upwards.

I continue to gather further knowledge as part of my CPD requirements annually and have strong links with other therapists locally for peer supervision and learning.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair access is available at Select Healthy Mind, Cobbler's Cottage, Sun Close, Eton, SL4 6AR
