Welcome to my page. Hello! I am a registered Psychotherapist with some 15 years' experience of a wide range of issues. I work with adults and young people aged 14 and above, and my rates are £45 per 55 minute session.
I think that counselling and psychotherapy (they are almost the same thing!) is a unique opportunity for people to stop and think about things that are troubling them. These are serious matters and I know how important they are. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental atmosphere in which you can explore your feelings and thoughts.
You may be reading this because you are experiencing issues that many people seem to be facing at the moment; anxiety, relationship issues, panicky feelings or depression. I have considerable experience in psychotherapy and counselling in these areas.

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling/psychotherapy (the words mean much the same) is an opportunity to talk with someone openly in a way that helps you to see difficulties in a new way. My aims are to help you to explore your feelings and thoughts, so that you can understand your situation differently and to support you towards feeling differently about things. This can lead to new ways of behaving that brings greater satisfaction in life. Coming to counselling and psychotherapy can be daunting to start with, but that hurdle is soon overcome. My role in this journey is to be respectful and sensitive, and to support you in your exploration. Your success in this is important to me.
