About me

**Currently Taking New Clients Thursday am Milton Keynes & Friday Oxford Circus** Is life frustrating? Are you anxious, or having relationship difficulties? I offer a welcoming, confidential space to share & overcome life's difficulties.

I offer short and long term therapy and counselling for people experiencing life's difficulties including relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and bereavement. I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist with a psychodynamic orientation.  This means I can work in a variety of ways and ensure that you get the best possible support for the issues you want to explore.  I offer individual long and short term therapy and can see people once a week or more frequently.

The way we are going to work together is something we would agree.  Sometimes CBT is helpful for the immediate relief of symptoms, helping with panic and for anger management.  Other times a more meditative and mindful approach might be more helpful in relieving stress, anxiety and depression. Sometime it's preferable to concentrate on understanding and finding new ways to deal with life’s daily difficulties, perhaps in understanding why patterns of abuse repeat themselves. Many people also find working with dreams highly beneficial.

However we proceed you are guaranteed an atmosphere of thoughtful compassion, intelligent reflection and openness.
