About me

I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor and also have many years experience of working as a doctor. I work with young adults and adult clients who are seeking help with a wide range of problems including anxiety, depression, obsessions and compulsions, phobias, bereavement, relational and sexual problems, low self-esteem, difficulties in making choices and transitions, eating disorders and problems stemming from childhood, and bodily illnesses with emotional components. I am particularly interested in trauma.

If you choose to work with me, you will find that I work in an empathic and sensitive way in a comfortable and confidential setting in order to help alleviate your symptoms and reduce levels of discomfort by helping you to gain insight into your problems.

I am fully insured and receive regular professional supervision and postgraduate education. I also abide by the code of professional ethics of the BACP of which I am a member.

You may contact me by email or telephone by which I am happy to discuss with you your particular problems before our agreeing on meeting for a first-session assessment to determine whether I am able to help you and whether you feel that I am the right person to help you. If I felt that I was not able to help you, I would endeavour to find a colleague who I felt would able to do so.
