About me

If you have got this far you probably have an inkling that to talk about what is troubling you might help. Why not give it a try? Perhaps you are wondering how it works. The short answer is we work together to make connections between your past experience and your present life. It is as we become more aware of these connections that change can flourish. Why not take a step of faith and see where "talking about it" gets you?

It might help to know that I work mainly in a person-centred and psychodynamic way. I am a generalist, but have a special interest in bereavement, depression and anxiety. I am also a practicing Christian and take a holistic view of human beings. I have a particular interest in spiritual depression, failure and the Christian and obstacles to spiritual growth.

I really believe that talking therapy works, so why not drop me an e mail or give me a call?
