About me

I am an extremely experienced therapist and have worked in this field for more than 20 years. I provide a confidential and safe environment in which you can speak freely and openly about your life experiences and feelings, secure in the knowledge that together we will endeavour to work towards developing a greater understanding of yourself and the difficulties that you are now encountering.

I am aware of how difficult it may feel to approach a counsellor and of the anxiety that it can evoke within you, and so please be assured that I have an understanding of this when you make your initial contact with me.

I am a qualified BACP accredited Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I have worked for several years at Redhill Counselling Centre, seeing clients with a wide range of problems, which include depression, anxiety, relationship problems, bereavement, sexual abuse, etc. I have previously worked at an Independent Mental Health hospital for a number of years, doing both individual and group work.

I am a Training Analyst for WPF Therapy.

Early morning from (7 am), evening and weekend appointments are available.

I am happy to offer both short term or long term counselling depending upon the individual needs of the client.
