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 16 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.

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
