About me

I  am  a qualified experienced and registered Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have had years of experience working with adult clients  in the NHS, as well as private practice.

I work with clients to explore with them the origins of their present difficulties that they find themselves stuck in, and perhaps compelled to repeat the same pattern of behaviour time and again, with different people and different situations.

I work with my clients to bring to awareness the blind spots that one may have, and try to find together an alternative view of oneself and others. 

I work confidentially, and  abide by the BACP code of conduct.
