About me

I an a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist with over 30 years' experience working with individuals. My role is to work empathetically with you to address a wide range of personal issues, and to provide support through difficult life experiences. My aim is to provide a safe and confidential space, with respect for you and your personal values, and to help you to make sense of thoughts and feelings that may be causing you difficulty.

My therapeutic training covers a wide range: from the transpersonal perspective to the focused short-term approach of Cognitive Analytic Therapy. I therefore see some clients for a very few sessions which would aim to put a problem into perspective and identify resources for further help –and others for longer-term psychotherapy which would go more deeply into patterns and self exploration.

I work with individuals. but not with couples or children under 18.

I have 43 years' experience of work with stress management for individuals and organisations, and have worked for 33 years as a counsellor/ psychotherapist with referrals from GPs, Occupational Health, employee assistance providers as well as private referrals.

I am a registered Psychotherapist with the UKCP

I have also practised Transcendental Meditation for many years, which I have found immensely enjoyable and helpful.

I am committed to my continuing professional development, and my practice is fully supervised.

I also work as a counselling supervisor

Counselling can help to address the following problems amongst others:

Anxiety and stress
