About me

Many individuals and families reach a point in their lives where they find they need some extra support in dealing with life’s struggles and it can be difficult knowing which support out there is the right one for you.

In my psychotherapy practice I offer a safe, confidential space to work out just what sort of support you might be needing. Together we will work out how talking therapy can help you to explore yours or your family's present difficulties and find new solutions, new ways of seeing yourself and the world, and perhaps new ways of living your life.

I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and abide by their code or ethics.

Part of attending therapy is to realise the patterns in our lives, and learn that we all have a choice to break away from old patterns and reinvent new ways of living in our relationships, careers and home lives.

It is of course very important for you to feel comfortable that you have chosen the right counsellor or psychotherapist. You can meet me for a one-off assessment session where we can see whether my approach will be right for you, at which time we will discuss how many sessions might be helpful for you.
