About me

I am a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist who trained with The Tavistock Clinic and The Northern School of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy. I am registered to practice with The British Psychoanalytic Council and am a member of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists.

I have over 30 years experience of working in different therapeutic settings within, and outside, the NHS. I have worked with a greatly diverse group of people who experience a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties. Such difficulties effect people's confidence in relationships, often leaving them unsure about their, and other people's actions. This forms the backdrop to a confusing and complicated mix of feelings that can lead to a sense of isolated unhappiness, struggle to trust and strong feelings of anxiety.

My practice is underpinned by a long, thorough and rigorous training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. Within a carefully provided, safe and thoughtful setting I am able to pay careful attention to my clients and the content of their communications. It is my belief that such a setting is required in order that people can have a better than usual experience of being taken seriously, where the more uncomfortable aspects of a personal history can gradually be thought about, get to be known, then understood.

Who I work with:

I have developed experience that allows me to work with a broad range of emotional, psychological and relational difficulties. I have particular interest in the following areas:

  • Guilt and Shame
  • Anger and aggression.
  • Anxiety states of fear, dread and terror.
  • Borderline states of mind.
  • Issues relating to self harm.
  • Difficulties in sustaining satisfying relationships.
  • Loss, grief and mourning.
  • Cumulative trauma such as emotion, physical and/or sexual abuse.
  • Emotional blocks to learning.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experienced working in various NHS settings including regional and specialist psychotherapy services, I have also been involved in developing specialist personality disorder services.

My training to qualify and register as an adult psychotherapist had a specialist focus upon intercultural dynamics. I have experience of running Analytic Psychotherapy Groups and Mentalization Based Treatment programmes. I have worked in a number of different Therapeutic Communities and have been involved in the development of such programmes within the NHS. I am trained in Mentalization Based Treatment.

Till 2019 I was Honorary Teacher for the Clinical Psychology Doctorate at Liverpool University. I am also on the board of Trustees for Group Analysis North, a Group Analytic Training Institution based in Bolton.

Along with a Clinical Psychology colleague I provide organisational consultancy to two Secondary Schools in connection to staff wellbeing, pupil's learning and mental health. This work supports the Senior Leadership Team to develop a 'Healthy Mind' environment where young people's mental health is connected to their learning potential.. The work involves consultation, training and supervision of teacher groups and pastoral care staff.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

My consulting rooms are situated on the second floor of the building. There is no lift access so, regrettably, access is not good for people who are physically disabled.
