About me


Does something need to change in your life? Would you like some help turning things around?

My approach to person-centred therapy is positive and life-affirming. You are not broken or weird, and you deserve more than a label or diagnosis.

Instead, you are the sole authority of your own experience, and you have a better idea of what you want for your life than anyone else.

In our work together, I will accompany you, as your companion. We will do things your way. We may look into the dark rooms of your past, or examine the difficulties of your here and now, but we may also get out into the fresh air of what's possible for you in your future. We may shine a light on your values, purpose and potential, and we will work hard to define what it is you want for yourself, what the best version of yourself would look like and how we're going to get you closer to that best version of yourself.

This is an approach to wellness that's perfect for our modern world. There is no need to commit to never-ending therapy for effective, self-defined change to occur, and you will go on to use the work we do together as a springboard toward your new life.

Paradoxically, I can also offer a traditional, longer-term therapy of deep exploration and patience where we may examine the concerns and hurts of the past and present, and also the innate strength and resilience that has gotten you this far, to where you are now. With this gentle approach there is no rush to fix yourself, there is no pressure at all. We will take all the time you need.

Therapy will take place in a quiet room within my home. The room is warm, comfortable and non-clinical, and the setting will allow us to shape the therapy to suit the busy life that you lead.

So, regardless of the nature of your concern, shall we come together and speak of it here? Will you take the first courageous steps on the path to yourself?

You have nothing to lose, as there is no charge for our first introductory meeting. We will use this meeting to hear your story, define the goals and parameters of our work and clarify any queries that may arise for you. There is no obligation for you to continue beyond this point.

Let's begin.
Your life has waited long enough.
I look forward to meeting you.

My fee is ¬£45.00 per hour. This fee may be subject to variation under special circumstances‚ÄĒplease ask.

The first session will be free of charge. This gives you the opportunity to meet me in person and see if you feel happy to work with me. This preliminary meeting allows us to cover administrative aspects of our relationship and determine your goals for any work that follows.

If you decide to continue, I will take advance payment, in cash, for the first booked session. This ensures that your chosen time is reserved for you. Equally, if you decide it's not for you, there'll be nothing to pay
