About me

With 18 years experience as a Counsellor, I can offer you a safe space in which to explore and think about your current difficulties.

If you are experiencing a crisis, or have been feeling anxious, depressed or stuck for some time, whatever the presenting issues are, we can talk about and explore them together. My main approach is psychodynamic which means we will think about how your past may be affecting your present. If we can think about the underlying issues, the roots of the problems, we can try to make sense of them and work through the feelings involved. The therapeutic relationship we will form is crucial to help come to terms with difficulties and conflicts, discover new insights, increase your understanding, self acceptance and life satisfaction. I can offer you a balance of support and challenge in an empathic, boundaried way that helps you move forward with your life.

I offer both brief counselling or longer term therapy with individuals and with groups. I've worked in many different organisations (education, charity, youth) and currently work in the NHS as a GP counsellor in addition to my private practice.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a wide range of professional and clinical experience, and worked with a diverse range of people from different cultural and religious backgrounds.

Later this year I am seeking new clients who have addictions or compulsive behaviour, notably porn or sex addiction as I am completing further training on an ATSAC accredited Diploma (Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity). I'm able to offer a reduced fee if you contact me with this as your primary difficulty.


£50 for individuals for sessions (50 minutes). My fee is currently the same for Initial Consultations and for ongoing sessions.

Concessions are available (on request) for students or low waged - I have a limited number available so please mention this when enquiring.

For clients coming more that once a week I offer a 10% reduction in fees.

My fees are reviewed annually.
