About me

I am a psychotherapist for open ended therapy and a specialist in time limited counselling : 6 or 12 sessions.

In addition to having completed a rigorous training in Psychotherapy, I have also trained as a time limited therapist.

I have more than 18 years experience of working in this field in both the NHS and in a University Student Counselling Service as well as my private practice.

Time limited therapy can be a helpful and effective in a wide range of circumstances. I am able to arrange a conversation on the phone if you need further information.

I work with relationship problems, difficulties at work, parenting issues, ageing, depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, boarding school syndrome, bereavement, sexual abuse and eating disorders. With my work as a Student Counsellor for over 10 years i jave developed a particular interest in working with students and those leaving full time further education.

My fees for time limited term work are negotiable so that they are affordable to you.

I also offer open-ended psychotherapy.

I provide a safe and confidential place where you can talk freely about whatever may be troubling you.

I abide by the Codes of Ethics of the Federation of Psychotherapy and Counselling, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and the British Psychoanalytic Council
