Hello and welcome to my profile, I am a Psychotherapist and Counsellor with years of experience to facilitate you in your exploration, growth and ultimate recovery.
I provide a safe and confidential space and whatever your reasons for seeking psychotherapy and counselling it is helpful to meet for an initial session, where we can reflect on the way you experience the issues and difficulties in your life. We can discuss whether counselling is right for you, how it works and how you might wish to proceed.
I will work hard to understand your expectations of your counselling and of me and your hopes and fears for the future. I will listen and help you make sense of the things that matter to you.
I have practices located in Petersfield, Hampshire, Midhurst, West Sussex and West Hampstead. I also work as a private therapist in a central London location.
