About me

I have 30 years experience of providing therapeutic interventions within the NHS, private practice and the criminal justice system. During this time I have worked with people to improve their quality of life by overcoming emotional and psychological difficulties particularly in relation to anxiety, depression and relationship issues. In addition, I have considerable experience of assisting individuals with challenging issues relating to substance use, chemsex, addictions, employment issues, organisational dynamics, PTSD, offending behaviour and imprisonment.

I have considerable experience of men and women working in adult industries and sex work.

The first appointment is used to make a full assessment of the situation. This is a mutual process to consider the most likely effective way of working together. A working agreement is then established to ensure respect, safety and to answer any questions.

Following the assessment then short or long term intervention commences. The minimum number is usually 6 to 12 weekly appointment and long term work is usually open-ended with reviews every 3 months.

I am qualified to provide both psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy. I train and coach effective mindfulness meditation techniques to assist many areas of personal development.

Clinical supervision is available for trainees and qualified practitioners.

For those involved in legal proceedings I can provide Forensic mental health assessments to assist in judicial process. These assessments can be commissioned by legal representatives, the probation service and by the courts.
